Spain’s first openly trans senator has pledged to defend the country’s trans self-ID law as right-wing parties attempt to roll back trans rights. Carla Antonelli joined the Senate of Spain on Thursday (17 August) after an inconclusive July parliamentary election. Speaking with the Thomson Reuters Foundation, the prominent trans activist and former actress, said “we will defend our rights tooth and nail”, in response to Spain’s recent passing of a trans self-ID law, a reform she was a leading advocate for.
