VIMÖ started in 2013. They have as a strong core peersupport and communitybuilding, with dozens of consultation each year, a 4days training for their counselors, and research on their peersupport work with social work students to improve it. They ensure online community meetings since the pandemic. They also do awarenessraising with online trainings, and started a new education and training platform, varges.at. Regarding advocacy, they work closely with the Green Party in the national government. Thanks to their work, the Ministry of Interior released a new edict regarding the third gender marker, but there’s still work to do since the edict is still pathologising and trans-excluding.
