The genderqueer in UK law: Why current laws are insufficient

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Europe further called for the rights of non-binary people in Resolution 2048 (2015) by stating that Member States must ‘consider including a third gender option in identity documents for those who seek it’4 thereby opening the possibility of non-binary individuals being able to move beyond the legally recognised system of binary gender and begin to develop alternative ways of being legally recognised gendered individuals. So, it is clear that there are moves towards obtaining legal recognition for non-binary gender identities; however, it is also clear that UK law is very far behind on this.
