Updating Your Birth Certificate to Reflect Your Proper Gender Workshop

GLAD’s Community Engagement Coordinator Julian Cancino provides information for trans people and allies on the process and requirements for amending gender on birth certificates and advocacy to modernize the criteria to amend birth certificates. 

The Connecticut General Assembly has recently amended the process for changing gender markers on birth certificates. Governor Malloy signed the bill into law on June 24, 2015 and the changes went into effect on October 1, 2015. 

The workshop includes basic legal information on transgender identity, information on the process and requirements for amending gender on birth certificates, and information on advocacy to modernize the criteria to amend birth certificates.  

Workshop presented at the 2016 Transgender Lives Conference, "The Intersection of Health and Law Conference".
