Global Action for Trans* Equality (GATE) is an organisation and think tank for transsexuals' or transgender's dignity and rights founded in 2009. Mauro Cabral has become the co-director in 2010 with Justus Eisfeld, a member of Transgender Europe and a contributor to the Activist's Guide for the Yogyakarta Principles in Action.
The mission of GATE is as follows;
- Believing that the respect and celebration of gender diversity is an integral part of a society that is based on the fulfillment of human rights.
- Aiming to protect the human rights of trans people worldwide.
- Working for the empowerment and self-determination of all trans people and aims to increase the visibility and respect of all trans people.
- Opposing the continued exotisation of trans people and the persistent pathologisation of gender variance as a mental disorder.
- Working to combat the violence, discrimination and unequal treatment experienced by trans people.
The GATE also has a connection with Julia Ehrt of Transgender Europe in Germany and Tamara Adrian of International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender & Intersex Law Association in Venezuela. It also maintains a durable relationship with United Nations Special Rapporteurs and NGOs, and tries to advance its political agenda through lobbying at the United Nations and WHO. On 17 June, GATE also contributed to the resolution of UN Human Rights Council presented by South Africa along with Brazil concerning human rights on sexual orientation and gender identity. And on 30 June 2011, Mauro Cabral, the co-director made a speech at the European Parliament Subcommittee on Human Rights for the trans and intersex rights.
