NH DMV Petition

There are people up in New Hampshire trying to convince the DMV to change their surgery requirement for gender marker change on licenses. In order to show how much support there would be for such changes, they've started an online petition.

Requiring surgery as a condition of ID change is both medically and economically discriminatory.

Do sign it.

I signed the petition... hope i am not too late.

I had to change my gender marker on my NY State Drivers License and I remember it being quite simple. The rule on that says something to the effect of, if one's psychological gender does not match, a letter from a doctor or psych- stating that the change is necessary is all you need. . It makes me sick to think that this is not the last of these petitions that I will sign. Thanks for keeping me in the loop.
