We build a community having transfeminism on mind. We promote and defend the human rights of sexual diversities, and transgender people. We want to empower them.
We envision a community based on democracy in which every individual can decide freely what to do with their bodies and their identity without the enforcement of social gender roles.
We work based on democracy. We promote the equal participation of every member so that each and every participant can use their leadership within the association.
Transparency is part of our financial and organizational processes. It is a fundamental part of our work and of our actions. We always have our annual report available for anyone who might be interested on it.
We work based on the physical and psychological integrity of every human being. We promote a healthy coexistence with the public.
We build a community based on harmony and inclusion. We promote relationships based on cooperation and feminism -caring for others and themselves-. This is an essential value of the organization.
We believe activism and community-building are based on the participation of authentic, fair, and committed people who can achieve the common good.
