Fighting for legal and social recognition outside the gendered societal structure
15/01/21: IMPORTANT NOTICE: THE 22ND JANUARY PARLIAMENTARY SITTING HAS BEEN CANCELLED. 2ND READING WILL NOT TAKE PLACE ON THE DAY INDICATED BELOW. NO NEW DATE HAS BEEN ANNOUNCED AT PRESENT
Non-gender-specific Passports Bill
The 2nd reading of the Non-gender-specific Passports Bill has been postponed [again] and now scheduled for Friday 22nd Jan 2021.
The Private Members’ Bill, presented by Liberal Democrat MP Christine Jardine, calls upon the UK Home Office to change its discriminatory policy on ‘X’ PASSPORTS.
The UK Government’s ongoing refusal to issue ‘X’ PASSPORTS forces people of neither gender to accept an inappropriately gendered identity document that misrepresents rather than affirms their identity.
If you, or someone you care about, are personally affected by this issue then I ask you to contact your local MP and urge their support for the Bill.
And if you don’t know anyone who is affected by this issue but nonetheless care about justice, social equality and the fundamental right of legitimate identity that is being denied by the UK Home Office’s continuance of its discriminatory passport policy then I must ask you to contact your local MP and urge their support for this Bill.

This is not a fringe issue. This is a fundamental human rights issue. All MPs should be encouraged to support the introduction of non gender-specific ‘X’ PASSPORTS in the UK.
The denial of existence is the worst act of discrimination by the gendered majority against the non-gendered
