Russian lawmakers have advanced a draft law that would ban transgender people from accessing gender-affirming surgeries. Medical workers would be prohibited from “performing medical interventions designed to change the sex of a person” under the law – though there would be an exemption for treating congenital anomalies in minors.

Trans people would also be blocked from changing their gender identity on official documents or from becoming foster or adoptive parents.

Marriages in which one person has “changed gender” would be annulled. The bill was unanimously approved by Russia’s lower house of parliament, the State Duma, in its second reading.

Its third and final reading has been scheduled for 14 July, according to the official Telegram channel of the State Duma.
