Please, everyone take part in this consultation. It's long winded, but so worth it.

Thanks for putting this up, Elegran.
I hope everyone who has any views about possible reform of the Gender Recognition Act will take part in the consultation.

Fair Play For Women has a guide to completing it, for anyone who feels they need that.

Here's a link to Stonewall, an organisation which says "We're here to let all lesbian, gay, bi and trans people, here and abroad, know they're not alone."

It includes their top tips for filling in the consultation.

Just thought I'd draw attention to this again.

Whatever your views on changes to the Gender Recognition Act, it's very important to let the government know about them.

Or Scotland shock

Scotland had its own consultation. It ended in (I think) March.

FarNorth Thu 13-Sep-18 21:16:01

I know.
This one is publicised as being UK, which misled me. It is actually about England & Wales.

Elegran Fri 14-Sep-18 14:18:21

Ah, but the media and those who are publicising the England and Wales consultation believe either
a) that Scotland is not part of the UK, or that
b) Scotland's legislation on this will be done by Westminster so the independent Scottish consultation that has already been carried out is irrelevant and can be ignored.

Fair Play for Women has an easy-to-fill-in form to send in on this topic.
