We're currently in the middle of a government consultation on reform of the Gender Recognition Act. This may make life much easier for Trans people, and possibly (for the first time) recognise those who identify as non-binary/genderqueer.

The consultation documents are available at https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/reform-of-the-ge nder-recognition-act-2004

If you are scared of, or can't be bothered with, thinking of a full and detailed response to the consultation, the Green Party offers a pre-filled-in response, which you can use as a basis - altering and amending responses where necessary to reflect your own personal views. That's on https://lgbtiqa.greenparty.org.uk/campaigns/gra-consultation -response.html, and you don't have to belong to or support the Green Party to use it.

I'm pretty certain that the anti-trans bunch will be active in making their views known, so it's really important that those of us who believe in diversity and equality contribute to this consultation. Even if you're a reader of this forum, rather than a poster, it would mean a lot if you could respond to the consultation, or see fit to share on social media this opportunity to make a real difference to the lives of trans and non-binary people in this country.

I am very grateful for the links, especially to the pre-populated answers. I have modified some of those and accepted others as they stand, and I have submitted the form
