Simon Corbell has released the ACT Law Reform Advisory Council’s report: Beyond the Binary: legal recognition of sex and gender diversity in the ACT. He’s been sitting on it since March.
The report recommends a focus on the need for correct and consistent terminology for sex and gender diverse people in ACT legislation and government documentation to enable equal access to services for all people in the Territory.
The report urges a reconsideration of the current policy and procedures to give legal recognition to a persons’ sex or gender identity.
It also calls for the relaxation of criteria that must be met for a person to change their legal sex and gender status.
UPDATE 09/07/12 16:57: The Greens are pointing out that this stuff was largely recommended in 2003 and maybe now would be a good time to do something about it.
