7 Days of Trans Truths
View in browser [link removed]
I’m a boy.
I’ve always been a boy inside but some of my body parts are wrong to how I feel. I know I’m young but I do know who I am and I should be allowed the right to be me. Being included in gender recognition would mean I could get a new birth certificate and be properly recognised as who I am.
Without one it would be harder to get a job when I’m older because my information won’t match so I’d be made to tell people. I shouldn’t have to do that.
A 16 year old can have a job, leave home and be a parent. They can even join the army, like I want to be in the Royal Navy, but without gender recognition I won’t have the same rights as my friends. That’s discrimination.
I don’t know why you’ve not included us but I hope you’ll change your minds. It would make life easier and fairer. We should all matter so please don’t ignore us just because we’re young.
Harry. is 12 years old and he is one of the thousands of young people being left behind by Gender Recognition Act 2004 (GRA). The law currently does not allow trans and non-binary people under the age of 18 to have their gender legally recognised.
With a new government coming soon, we want those in power to protect the rights of all trans people including non-binary people, no matter their age.
Everyone has the right to be who they are. If you agree, stand with young people like Harry. and demand that the law allows trans children and young people to have their identity legally recognised.
