The president of the executive board of the University of Amsterdam, Karel van der Toorn, presented transgender activist and alumnus Justus Eisfeld with a new diploma reflecting his correct gender April 6 in New York City.
Van der Toorn was in New York, where Eisfeld works for Global Action for Trans Equality, on a business trip.
Eisfeld underwent gender transition after graduation from the university.
Approval to issue the revised diploma came in November via a ruling from the Dutch Equal Treatment Commission.
The decision also applies to other Dutch transgender people.
