Elections: Christie Elan-Cane asks about X gendered passports in PinkNews Debate

PinkNews livestreamed a debate to YouTube yesterday, where Christie Elan-Cane asked about the various parties committment to providing X-gender passports to non-gendered people (and by extension, nonbinary people).

Short summary of responses:

  • Natalie Bennett (Green Party Leader): A motion has passed regarding this, and they see it as an important issue.
  • Peter Whittle (UKIP Candidate for Eltham, resp. for Cultural Policy): He didn’t know enough about it to be able to give an answer.
  • Dan Foster (LibDem Chief Whip): “A straight yes.”
  • Yvette Cooper (Labour Shadow Home Sec.): They’re looking at this as part of a bigger review surrounding trans issues, but are unable to give a direct answer at this time.
  • Baroness Tina Stowell (Conservative Peer): This is important and they’ll look at it, but they can’t make any kind of comittment at this time.
