From 3 July to 22 October the GEO received responses from a range of individuals and organisations as part of the public consultation on the Gender Recognition Act 2004. We asked how we might reform the Act to make it less bureaucratic and intrusive to change legal gender and we received many responses from trans and non-binary people.
The GEO met over 100 organisations in the run up to, and during this public consultation. We are now preparing to analyse the written submissions and evidence collected so far.
We are aware there are a range of views on reform and that this is a complex issue that we want to get right. That is why we will continue to meet with stakeholders as we develop the Government’s response.
