Transgender Birth Certificate Discrimination

Creates standards for amending the sex on a birth certificate, including certification from a licensed health care provider that the person has undergone gender transition treatment based on appropriate medical standards, and eliminates the discriminatory surgery requirement. Transgender New Jerseyans face stigma and discrimination as a result of the existing surgery and name change requirements that are out of step with contemporary medical standards.
