Action for Identity – API, is a non-governmental organization, which aims at defending, documenting and advocating for gender diversity and sex characteristics/body diversity. API’s work focuses on the experience of trans people and intersex through the promotion of Human Rights, with an anti-racist and feminist perspective. Intersectionality and non-discrimination on grounds of ancestry, sex, gender, race, ethnicity, language, place of origin, religion, political or ideological beliefs, age, education, economic status, social status, health status or sexual orientation are at the core of API’ s work.
API officially became a member organisation of IGLYO in November 2015.
