Denmark Allows Trans* People To Change Their Gender On Official Documents Without Surgery

Written by

A new law now allows Danish transgender people to have their real gender legally recognized, but yet it does not meet the trans* people because it requires a "reflection period".

Indeed, the newly adopted law no longer requires no more surgery to see a gender recognized but nevertheless it requires that the person is over the age of 18 years and that a "reflection period" of six months is respected.

Transgender Europe said in a statement that "the imposed delay in the procedure prevents trans people from changing their documents quickly when necessary – for example when applying for a job, travelling internationally or enrolling in education."

The organization also criticizes the misconception that a trans* person is automatically confused about his/her gender as implied in the law.
