Births, Death and Marriages Registration (Gender Identity) Amendment Bill

Second Reading

Adjourned debate on second reading

(Continued from 17 November 2016)

The Hon. J.A. DARLEY ( 16:08 :13 ): I rise very briefly to indicate my support for this bill which will allow adults to change the gender marker on their birth certificate without the need to undergo surgery, which is currently the case. I recognise that this relatively minor change to the legislation will mean a great deal to those who are affected. With that, I support the bill.
