Australia to allow trans* and intersex to change marker on birth certificate – including ‘X’

http://www.pinknews.co.uk/2014/03/20/australia-act-assembly-approves-new-gender-identity-birth-certificate-rules-trans-intersex-people/

Australia joined New Zealand in its provision of ‘X’ passports two and a half years ago, subsequently the federal government instructed all government departments to use ‘X’ when ‘M’ and ‘F’ did not apply, and now it is possible to amend the birth certificate.

As Australia has forged ahead, the UK government refuses to address the issue and continues to deny legitimate identity to trans* and intersex who do not define as male or female.

Shame on the UK government for its failure and mishandling of this issue.

The denial of existence is the worst act of discrimination by the gendered majority against the non-gendered
