Gender on birth certificates

Submission supporting self-identification of gender on birth certificates.

This submission is to the Governance and Administration Committee on the Supplementary Order Paper (SOP) on the Births, Deaths, Marriages and Relationships Registration Bill. The SOP would enable people to self-identify their sex on their birth certificate by making a statutory declaration, similar to the current processes for changing sex on drivers’ licenses and passports.
