no longer require surgery to change gender on birth certificates

we the transgender citizens of the State of New York including New York city demand that the requirements for changing gender on Birth certificates no longer have to surgery as a requirement to change the gender marker on our birth certificates this causes and undo and un necessary Burdon on not only the transgender citizens financially but also those who cannot have the required surgery do to medical restraints! Also in addition the easier access to the marker change would lessen the exposure of a transgender individual to be publicly "outed" and would help considerably in living a normal life as their correct gender!
