Gender ID laws:
In Spain it is the Gay Federation who promotes gender identity legislation. In Congress there were attempts to link the left with the project. They have the support of a sector on the left and the neoliberals of the centre. The government, through internal instructions to the Civil Registry, allows the registration of transgender people despite not having reformed the 2007 law. There is an open confrontation between feminists and transgender sharpened after a meeting promoted by the philosopher Amelia Valcarcel in July 2019 where the risks to women's rights were denounced.
The minimum age to request gender reassignment surgery is explicitly set at 18.
