Europe’s largest homosexual activist organization, ILGA Europe, has praised Denmark’s Parliament for allowing citizens to change their sex on identification documents on request.
Last week, Danish parliamentarians passed a measure allowing a legal sex change without, as previously required, a diagnosis of gender identity disorder and sterilization. The new law will take effect September 1 and will allow any citizen over the age of 18 to legally change their gender following a six-month waiting period.
“Today we have dropped the requirement of sterilization when transgendered people need a new personal identification number as part of a legal sex change,” Minister for Economics and the Interior Margrethe Vestager said in a statement.
“It will make life easier and more dignified for the individual, for example when you are asked for ID in shops,” she added.
