Trinidad: Churches threaten legal action on transgender protocol

THE TT Council of Evangelical Churches (TTCEC) has signalled its intention to “resist” provisions in the Gender Equality Protocol for Judicial Officers regarding transgender people.

The Judicial Education Institute of TT, on its webpage, says the protocol is a “practical guide geared towards fostering and improving gender-sensitive adjudication in Trinidad and Tobago.”

In a media release on Wednesday, the council said legal action or peaceful protests were in the offing if the protocol is enacted.

The council also objected to a guideline which stated “transgender persons must be referred to by the pronoun of their choice.”
