African Gender Institute/Gender Studies position on the e-media University of Cape Town talk, “What does Science say about LGBTQA+”, hosted by VC Phakeng in conversation with Dr. Kgomotso Mathabe, a medical practitioner and urologist:

The Gender Diversity Coalition is calling for urgent action in the wake of a harmful and hurtful public seminar hosted by UCT Vice-Chancellor Mamokgethi Phakeng on social media platforms this weekend.

The Gender Diversity Coalition notes the letter from the University of Cape Town dated 6 September in response to the seminar held on 5 September 2021 with Dr Kgomotso Mathabe, a practising urologist and a member of the Steve Biko Academic Hospital’s Gender Clinic. 

We are appalled that the Vice-Chancellor of UCT would curate a seminar titled, “What does science says about LGBTQA+”.  

The public outrage on all social media platforms responds to the innate violence and harms this seminar has caused on Trans and Intersex persons and their families who feel the daily violence of medical and pathologized diagnosis that have no positive outcome on their lives.
