Norway’s Christian Democrat Party continues their support for transsexuals, in contrast to the conservative image of party leader Dagfinn Høybråten.
Norwegian health authorities have decided to drop financial support for the National organization for the diagnosis transsexualism (LFTS) which the group says is essential.
After a meeting with representatives for the transsexuals on Tuesday, Høybråten has sent a letter to Health Minister Sylvia Brustad asking that she restore LFTS support to current levels.
“The organization does an important job for equality both for transsexuals and their families – children and parents. This is a small but extremely vulnerable group,” Høybråten told newspaper VG.
Tusen takk! (I think that means, “thank you very much!”)
