Kansas has become the 48th state in America to allow transgender people to change the gender designations on their birth certificates.
The Kansas Department of Health and Environment has entered a consent judgment in a federal lawsuit to allow people to legally change the gender in their birth records by submitting a personal sworn statement of gender identity.
In addition, they would have to provide a drivers license or passport with their new identity, or an affidavit from a physician or mental health professional attesting to the person’s gender identity.
Now, the only two states left not allowing birth certificate changes are Tennessee and Ohio. I am sure some of you discerning Cyrsti’s Condo’s readers are aware I am from Ohio.
Our birth certificate case is in the courts now and hopefully we will climb out of the middle ages in this area also.
I have changed all my other gender markers and am waiting to do my birth certificate too!
