Transgender Europe Council Formed
On Feb. 2, 2005, the first Transgender Europe (TGEU) was formed in Austria. The organization is a network of different organizations of transgender and transsexual variants, as well as other like-minded people to combat discrimination and support trans people rights. It was founded during the 1st European Transgender Council as “European Transgender Network” in Vienna. Today, TGEU is a European third sector, umbrella organization which works towards the full equality and inclusion of all trans people in Europe. They also run the Trans Murder Monitoring project, which records and reports those killed each year as a result of transphobia.
