Gender Trust

The United Kingdom has various laws to protect and support people who wish to change their gender identity. At present, the Gender Recognition Act of 2004 (found here) allows people to gain full recognition of their acquired gender. This legal recognition enables people to obtain a new birth certificate that shows their acquired gender enabling them to adopt almost all of the legal rights which are afforded to that sex, including equal marriage rights. However, the law continues to allow sports organisations to exclude transsexual people from certain sporting competitions if they have evidence that the participation of that person would put other competitors at risk or impact on the principles of fair competition.
