Trys Cool started this petition to Representative Thomas Massie and

At this point in time in the state of Kentucky, for an amendment to be made to a birth certificate for the gender marker the individual would have to bring a sworn statement issued by a licensed physician affirming that gender reassignment surgery had been performed. The individual is also required to have a court order showing the legal name change.

Requiring invasive surgeries in order to alter one's birth certificate is another way that the transgender community is oppressed and ostracized. The laws in Kentucky simply have to change. As lifelong Kentuckians, we are hoping to raise awareness and have our Congress representatives on the right side of justice.

Please support our cause. Trans voices deserve to be heard. Every signature helps.
