The Transhumanist Party is a small but growing global political movement with the goal of promoting policy that further the objectives of transhumanism and transhumanists as well as that of wider society and individuals.

There are also "associated" groups in Canada, Croatia, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Spain, and Sweden.

These are groups which use the name "Transhumanist Party" or are in some other way associated with the global Transhumanist Party movement, but are not officially recognised full affiliates with the movement. In most cases, that lack of recognition is due to a level of activity that is not yet mature enough to properly represent the movement in that region.

Transhumanist Party

The Transhumanist Party was founded by Zoltan Istvan in October 2014 who announced his plan to run for US President under this banner. A semi-formal Transhumanist Party Global formed from activists involved in party formation internationally including Amon Twyman. In the UK, Alex Karran ran as an independent candidate in the May 2015 general election prior to the party's official registration.

Shortly after the UK party's first AGM in October 2015, the UK party made a statement stating that Zoltan does not have a 'real' political party and should claim no moral authority over the international movement.
