Russia institutes driving ban for transgender people: Russia Bans Transgender Drivers, Transgender people will be banned from driving cars in Russia, after the country’s government announced they would no longer be able to qualify for driving licences.
The Russian Government characterised people who change their gender as having a “disorder” and styled the ban as part of a crackdown on people with mental health issues.
People with sexual ftshes, including exhibitionism and voyeurism, have also been included on the driving ban list, BBC News reports.
They have been listed alongside gambling addicts and compulsive thieves, who are also banned from getting behind the wheel.
The Association of Russian Lawyers for Human Rights said the new law was “discriminatory” and unconstitutional.
The change would “cause the serious violations of human rights, the decision demonstrates the prejudice against the groups of citizens” a statement on the rights group’s website said.
