Good policy, making lives easier for trans and intersex people

by Jan Logie

We love good news here at the Greens.

And this is just plain old good news.

The Department of Internal Affairs have made a quiet change to allow intersex and trans people the choice of using the international symbol ‘X’ on their passports without having to go through the complex and intrusive process of changing their birth certificates or citizenship records. This is a world leading change.

Well done DIA. More of this sort of policy New Zealand!
