Trys Cool started this petition to Senator Mitt Romney and

At this point in time in the state of Utah, for an amendment to be made to a birth certificate for the gender marker the individual would have to bring a court order indicating the gender change which can require statements from healthcare providers. While Utah is ahead of several other states in the US, we still have far to go!

Requiring individuals to receive statements from healthcare providers can marginalize and ostracize people belonging to the transgender community even further. An individual’s true gender identity and the right and ability to have that gender reflected on legal documentation, more specifically a birth certificate, should not be determined by the discretion of a healthcare provider. The laws in Utah have to change. As a citizen of Utah, I am 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.
