A parliamentary majority with the Conservatives, the Progressive Party, Christian Democrats and the Centre Party says no to the proposal to studies on third gender.

Labours proposal therefore doesn’t get a majority, the newspaper Dagen said.

Labour has proposed to ask the government a new action plan for the LGBTI field. LGBTI stands for lesbians, gays, bisexuals, trans- or atypical gender categorization (intersex)

The last, and most controversial point of the plan, was to looking into introducing a third gender category, “hen”.

– We are not surprised by the decision, says the Association for Transgender Persons to Dagen.
