Gender Recognition Act consultation deadline was extended due to site crash


The public consultation for the government’s proposed reform of the Gender Recognition Act 2004 (GRA) has been extended from October 19 to October 22, because people had problems with gaining access to the website. The issue has since been addressed by the Government Equalities Office (GEO) via social networks. “Some people are having difficulty accessing the GRA consultation due to a high number of submissions,” the Women and Equalities Office wrote in a statement,“We are ensuring everyone can take part by extending the deadline to noon Monday 22 Oct.” The main idea of the debate is to decide whether the medical approval is obligatory for people to be recognized by their gender identity and whether they need to undergo gender reassignment surgery for their true identity and chosen name to be reflected in their documents. Many of trans activists believe these measures to be unnecessary because they make the process of transition more complicated.
