The National Council of Justice (CNJ) will launch this Monday (28) an unprecedented manual to guide magistrates across the country in the application of guidelines that ensure fundamental rights of LGBTQIA+ people in the context of criminal and juvenile justice.
The publication will bring together guidelines related to the definition of the place of deprivation of liberty and will list precedents, good national and international practices and paradigmatic decisions by the Supreme Court (STF), the Superior Court of Justice (STJ) and the Inter-American Court of Human Rights.
The manual reinforces that magistrates are prohibited from imposing practices that seek to adapt the appearance of self-declared LGBTQIA+ people — such as haircuts or uniforms that do not correspond to their gender.
“It is the first time that the Judiciary receives detailed guidance to ensure that accountability procedures involving self-declared LGBTI people are compatible with the Brazilian constitutional text,” says counselor Mário Guerreiro.
See, below, the manual prepared by the CNJ:
