star this property answer text <p>The Government Equalities Office is currently preparing the consultation on reform of the Gender Recognition Act, which will be published in due course. The responses to this consultation will be taken into account before deciding how to best reform the Gender Recognition Act 2004. <br> <br> Under the current Gender Recognition Act, trans people can change their legal gender by submitting a medical diagnosis of gender dysphoria, alongside other documentation including a second report from a medical professional, proof of having lived for at least two years in their acquired gender, and a statutory declaration that they intend to live in the acquired gender until death.</p><p>We are currently considering options for how we might we reform the current system, including examining how we could de-medicalise the legal process for changing gender.</p><p>The Gender Recognition Act does not, and will not, regulate the status of gender dysphoria as a mental health condition, as listed in medical handbooks. However, we are very clear that we do not consider being transgender to be a mental illness.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government does not have an estimate of the number of individuals in the UK who identify as transgender. <br>The total transgender population is difficult to estimate for a number of reasons. For example, there is no standardised approach to collecting data on gender identity and some individuals are unwilling to disclose that they are transgender due to privacy concerns. <br>The Ministry of Justice publish statistics on the Gender Recognition Act process every quarter.

star this property answer text <p>In July 2017, we announced our intention to consult on reforming the Gender Recognition Act 2004. We are currently considering the content of the consultation, and we will be publishing the consultation in due course. The consultation will run for at least 12 weeks.</p><p>We have been using the time since announcing our intention to consult, to analyse the responses from transgender people who responded to our National LGBT survey. In this survey, we asked about the views and experiences of transgender people who have applied for a Gender Recognition Certificate under the GRA. We will publish the results of this survey shortly.</p><p>Ahead of the consultation launch, we have also begun engaging with a wide range of people and organisations. These organisations include transgender, LGBT, women’s rights and faith groups.</p><p>The Government recognises that there are a wide range of views on how we might reform the Act. It has been valuable to hear these different voices prior to the consultation and we will continue to engage with stakeholders before, during, and after the consultation.</p><p>We are also working across Whitehall to ensure we fully understand what impact there could be from any reform to the Gender Recognition Act.</p>

DWP does not routinely maintain specific counts of these cases and the numbers can fluctuate. However, it is possible to state that in June 2015 DWP applied such controls to approximately 8,000 records relating to individuals at the various stages of gender transition.</p><p> </p> more like this
