Allow Non-binary people to get passports

Allow Non-binary people to get passports

Recognise that non binary people are real and allow us to have the same rights as everyone else. I want to be able to have a UK passport with an X gender in the same way that I could if I were German, Irish or Danish (amongst many others).

Why is this important?

This is a basic right. I pay taxes and vote, but as things stand I am not allowed to get a passport. It shows the inherent transphobic nature of the government and this needs to change.

Reasons for signing

  • It's time to recognise the diversity of humanity
  • It is important that all identities are treated with respect. In my role as a GIRES trustee, I specifically introduced the concept of identities outside the binary in NHS literature more than 10 years ago, and we have continued to support non-binary and non-gender people's rights to legal and social recognition. Passports are an important part of that, not only for travel purposes, but as identity documents in other environments, such as employment.
  • I am nonbinary
