A Third Party Intervention in the case Bogdanova v Russia has been filed jointly by TGEU, ILGA-Europe, EPATH and St. Petersburg LGBT NGO Coming-Out on June 10, 2015.

The case concerns a detained trans woman whose hormone therapy had been disrupted by prison authorities. Also, authorities breached her privacy by allegedly communicating her trans status and thus making her a victim of abuse inside the prison.

The intervention seeks to inform the court on the situation of trans people in prison in Russia as well as the consequences of hormone withdrawal.
