Trans Activists Protest APA Conference – By Amita Parashar

A group of transgender community leaders and their allies will protest the American Psychiatric Association conference Monday night in San Francisco. Reform GID Now is demanding that the APA revise its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) to more accurately reflect gender identity and expression.

The Human Rights Campaign issued a statement in support of Reform GID Now’s efforts, drawing comparisons with the APA’s 1973 decision to remove homosexuality from the DSM.
