UK Gov’t Considers Reforms That Would Let People Pick Their Legal Gender


Britain’s conservative government will promote legislation this fall that would let adults change their legal gender without a medical diagnosis, The Times reported Sunday.

People would be allowed to have their birth certificates altered to reflect the gender they identify with. Existing laws require a two-year wait period and a doctor’s examination before the legal sex change can be approved. A consultation on the Gender Recognition Bill could be announced as early as this fall.
