Abstract

This paper will explore the complex interconnections of gender equality, gender identity, and sexuality in the Icelandic context by examining the contemporary state of trans inclusion in Iceland. The project includes background research on gender equality and state feminism and the relationship of these movements and architectures with movements for queer and trans inclusion. The project of which this paper is a part also will include original research with the LGBT, feminist, and trans community in Iceland, including interviews with movement leaders from Trans Ísland and Samtökin ’78 as well as the Icelandic parents’ organization, state feminists, and scholars.
