Name and Gender Change for Transgender and Non-Binary Individuals

While our culture continues to evolve around transgender issues, major barriers like access to changing one’s name and gender on identity documents remain, putting transgender and non-binary people at risk for discrimination in jobs, housing, travel, and schools.

Issues include:

  • Need for third-gender marker on state-issued IDs
  • Strict and cumbersome identity document updates for minors
  • Strict and cumbersome physician requirements for birth certificate update
