At this seminar you'll get an overview on demographics of transgender people receiving gender-affirming care in Sweden – number of people, age, and earnings -- from the 1970s until today. We focus especially on geographic differences in access to care and the impact of ending the sterilization requirement in 2013.

The seminar will start with a presentation and will be followed by discussion and questions from the audience.

Academic Pride is a cooperation between institutions of higher learning and student organisations in the Stockholm region, with the purpose to highlight the importance of LGBTQIA+ issues in higher education – both in education, research and in the work and study environment. This year KTH coordinates Academic Pride.
