The Nonbinary Inclusion Project is supporting a campaign by UK Trans Info, along with several other groups, which is asking all general election candidates to pledge support for non-binary rights.
We’re asking them to:
– to support expanding the definitions in Equality Act 2010 to ensure all non-binary people are protected.
– to support reviewing the Gender Recognition Act, with a view to bringing the UK in line with the statement on Identity Recognition issued by the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) in January 2015.
– to support the introduction of non gender-specific X passports, and removing the requirement for a doctors letter when changing the gender marker on a passport.
Candidates can make their pledge by sending a tweet to @UKTransInfo or directly on the campaign’s website at http://ppc.uktrans.info. The website also allows members of the public to see who has pledged support, access contact details of candidates in their area in order and help with asking them to make the pledge.
Please contact your candidates and ask them to pledge their support for this. You can find more information, as well as the details of your local candidates, at http://ppc.uktrans.info
