It’s coming

After decades of waiting, for what felt like eternities, Germany’s “Transsexuellengesetz” (Transsexual Act), is supposed to be finally dropped.
The so-called self-determination law should then allow for an easier change of name according to gender identity.

This is what this picture is about: self-determination and equality under the law are overdue. The queer or rainbow community has been waiting for this for a long time. Hopefully, the diversity of the rainbow will defeat prejudice. It’s no coincidence that rainbows pour out of the hands here like “The Force” in Star Wars in the battle of the light side against the dark side of the Force.
