Petition Action

Legally recognise non binary gender identity.

Petition Details

Have non binary be included as an option under the GRP (Gender Recognition Panel)/ GRC (Gender Recognition Certificate), in order to allow those identifying as non binary to be legally recognised as their true gender identity.

Additional Information

Parliament debated this topic on 23 May 2022 and announced that despite public support, there are no plans to amend the Gender Recognition Act 2004. This Government claims that it wants everybody in the UK to feel safe and confident to be themselves. Without legal recognition, non binary individuals are actively discriminated against by our Government. The right to marriage or civil partnership, for example, is unavailable to non binary persons.
