Start the Gender Reform Act reformation process
The Government announced a consultation in 2016 to reform the Gender Recognition Act. This has been delayed for no explained reason, which has resulted in confusion, fear and misinformation, it’s delayed equality measures for our Trans and non-binary residents.
The Gender Recognition Act is in urgent need of reform if Her Majesty’s Government is to bring about full legal dignity for its trans and non-binary citizens. When the Women and Equalities Committee set out its recommendations for trans equality in 2016, it called to "update the GRA in line with principles of gender self-declaration [through statutory declaration] that have been developed in other jurisdictions", in turn removing the
medicalised, quasi-judicial process for gender recognition.
