Reform the Gender Recognition Act 2004
Legal recognition of non-binary people, accompanied by the introduction of a Gender ‘X’ marker on legal documents (passports, driver’s licenses, etc.).
De-medicalization of the process of legally changing your gender, instead allowing self-determined change without medical proof.
This could help:
- Reduce fear and confusion during ID checks
- Reduce instances of misgendering (when other people refer to you as the incorrect gender) in institutional and professional environments
- Ensuring non-binary identities are recognised in medical contexts, helping to protect patients from discrimination and misgendering
- End legal invisibility of non-binary people
Showing the Government is committed to equality and protection of minorities.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
