The International Foundation for Gender Education (IFGE) has posted an online petition at dsm.ifge.org/petition calling for removal of the Transvestic Disorder diagnosis (302.3) from the DSM-5. Please help put an end to this defamatory and hurtful psychiatric label by adding your name and spreading the word to your organizations, friends and contacts.
