Fighting for legal and social recognition outside the gendered societal structure
On 18 and 19 April 2018 there will be a full hearing in London for the judicial review of the UK Government’s policy in regard to the issuance of non gender-specific ‘X’ Passports.
The hearing will take place at the Royal Courts of Justice in the Stand.
A High Court judge granted permission to take the case forward at an earlier hearing on 11 October 2017.

The provision of ‘X’ Passports became a pivotal focal point for my campaign due to the importance of the passport as a recognised identity document in addition to its function as a travel document. That ‘X’ Passports already existed, are fully compliant in accordance with international standards, are issued in an ever increasing number of countries and must be recognised at other countries’ national borders had given me reason to believe that my Government would accept the need for their issuance in the UK. The UK Government resisted the need for ‘X’ Passports all the way and had left me with no option other than to bring a case for the judicial review of its discriminatory policy.
