Banking giant HSBC celebrates the International Transgender Day of Visibility


The banking giant is going to mark the visibility of their transgender and non-binary customers (there is a special day for it this Friday) with introducing the new policy of gender-neutral pronouns. And there are going to be 10 of them – Mx, Ind, M, Mre, Msr, Myr, Pr, Sai, Ser or Misc. Chanmging the gende in the bank account is going to be easier as well, they can just bring their new ID, gender recognition certificate or medical letter are also accepted. Stuart Barette, trans lead of HSBC Pride, the bank’s LGBT+ employee network, said: “On the day that I went into the branch to change my name and my gender I was terrified, to be honest. Coming out to anyone is difficult, as you don’t know people are going to react. That’s why the changes we’ve been making are so important, so that our trans customers can feel confident that they’re going to have a good experience and be speaking with someone who has been trained to better understand them.” Stuart Haire, UK head of retail, said the changes were “part of a broader priority for us to ensure our products and services are relevant for the unique financial needs of all of our customers. We want everyone to be able to access simple and smart banking solutions that work for them, and we will continue working with our LGBT+ colleagues and customers to ensure we’re getting it right.”
