Government Equalities Office consultation: Reform of the Gender Recognition Act 2004

The Government Equalities Office has launched a consultation on how best to reform the Gender Recognition Act 2004. Submit your views by 19 October 2018.

Since the Gender Recognition Act (GRA) came into force, only 4,910 people have legally changed their gender.

Many who responded to the government’s LGBT survey reported that they had not applied for legal recognition because the process was too bureaucratic, expensive and intrusive.

This consultation therefore asks how government can improve the process and make it a better service for those trans and non-binary people who wish to use it.

The deadline for responses is 19 October 2018.
