Changing the sex on your birth certificate will be easy in the ACT

Category: Capital Radio News

The ACT government wants to make it easier for Canberrans to change the sex on their birth certificate.

Chief Minister Andrew Barr says the government is developing an online-based system for managing birth certificates, which would allow people to choose a sex they identify with.

At this stage, the Capital of Equality Strategy does not include plans to make the inclusion of a sex marker optional,as is the case in Tasmania, but Mr Barr says that could be considered in the future.
