The UK is making plans to lower the age for trans people to be recognized legally to 16.
Released today (14 January), the Transgender Equality Inquiry Report makes more than 30 recommendations.
Among them is recommending for the age for when trans people are allowed to obtain a gender recognition certificate. When the GRC was brought into effect in 2005, it was 18. The report suggests lowering it to 16.
The majority of countries that allow legal transition is either 18 or 21.
