I have to wonder why I would want to try and change my birth certificate, I can't get the gender marker changed anyway, so what's the point? Ugh. We need comprehensive federal laws to fix the mess between the states.

This is a really helpful link! Thank you for sharing it. I learned what I need for name change in Vermont which I haven't been able to find easily elsewhere so thank you again!!

This is one of the things that I have a lot of questions about, TBH. I was born in Arizona, and the wording required to change your birth certificate is very vague... i.e. "irrevocably committed to gender change." -what the heck- does this MEAN?!? :banghead: SRS isn't something that I'm burning to get done (for a number of reasons), although there are plenty of other things (HRT, bilateral orch, etc.) that are VERY high on my list that could be considered to fall into this category, but are completely dependent on the surgeon that signs the letter.

 

I have an idea of who to blame, but I don't want to bring politics into it. I just wish that there as one humane, common-sense, inclusive standard for ALL people, no matter what metric you choose to apply...

In my case, my doctor knew what was needed, but other doctors will actually be happy to have you make a letter for them to sign. Your local LGBT Community Center also will have someone to help with those letters and will help your doctor if you give permission for the doctor to do it.

I received a wonderful certificate with a gold seal which looks almost like a diploma from my doctor after my surgery.  I guess it doesn't hurt to make it look official especially as it seems every state has it's own hurdles to make us jump.

 

Hugs,

I received multiple copies of a letter from my doctor after my surgery, in case I needed to mail them away.

I was told all you have to do is, get a letter from the doctor, certifying you had SRS. Courts post it for 10 days then alls good, that would help with SSN and DL

Each state has its own procedures, and this in fact may be the one in North Carolina, but as a Californian it is not exactly how it is done here.  Be sure of who tells you and accept ONLY reliable information from licensed Lawyers or para-legally trained people.  Your local LGBT Community Center either has an Identity Resolution Clinic on a regular basis or has a referral to a legal office or clinic who will help you for a low fee, or possibly free, and even show you how to avoid court fees in appropriate cases.

In California it's easy if you have an attorney. SRS is not necessary just a viable HRT treatment plan. Getting the treatment plan was the most difficult because it needs to be very specific.

 

I am taking my documentation in this week. My Doc has already signed off and my attorney has finish the Three required copies for Court. Fees are waived. Then I'll schedule a hearing, done processing.

 

I have to renew my DL this month anyway, so I am hoping to have Michelle as my BD present to myself.

The link posted at the top gets you to the info for your state.  Florida accepts the WPATH guidelines for the US Passport gender/name change, which does NOT require SRS to be completed or even started.  Just a "viable path" to gender change, which may or may not include SRS.  There's language that does need to be included in the letter that you need from an appropriate medical person (endrocrinologist, therapist, surgeon, whatever) and the letter must be on letterhead with specific information for the person doing the letter.  Listed out nicely.  Hope it helps.

I haven't decided when to submit a name/gender change.  Guess I'll see how HRT goes, then decide.

I guess I got lucky since I'm from Washington I just had to have my name change papers and a form filled out for gender change. Then to do my ID in Missouri I just needed my name change papers and my birth certificate.

This is a very good resource for U.S. folks on name and gender change issues.

I'm sure glad this thread got bumped today.  This URL is an extremely valuable resource for transitioning US residents.  It's nice to know I'll have no issue, whatsoever, changing my name or gender on my birth certificate and drivers license here in Washington State.  Thanks @VickySGV for the info and @Jordy for the thread bump.

This post is actually "pinned" in this Forum because it is the most recent and  most authoritative to date.  We do this with important posts and hope every body will open each forum and check the pinned posts in them.  Let the Mods or Admins know if you see other stuff that you think should be pinned, or stuff that is oldie moldy and no longer good stuff.

There is no single spot for ALL of them since they are specific to the content of the forums they are pinned to and would be confusing or misleading outside of the Forum setting.  If a post has been pinned, it is at the top of the Forum it relates to and does not age down the list as others do.  Open each Forum or sub Forum and they will have a green dot with a map tack in the middle and be the first post or posts at the top.  I found them an interesting way to visit all the forums when I first got here 8 years ago.

I think it would be great to have a "Best Of" for all the pinned threads in its own section.  They're all pinned for a reason....they're all important, critical, or newsworthy.  The threads in that section would simply be aliases or shortcuts to the original still in their original threads.  I've seen this on many sites and it's very handy...especially for newbies like myself.

 

my 2¢,

It's such a blessing to live here in WA Susan, really the whole west coast is awesome for such things.

 

I feel for our sisters and brothers born in OH for example, that have no ability to amend their birth cert currently (maybe that will change ?).

 

Hugs

I got absolutely no grief getting my BC from Utah!

Name and gender... I have my amended Certificate. All it took was Court Ordered name change, $25 and a self address envelope!

 

Says my name is Michelle and I'm female.

      Sounds like a mullet! lol   My hair is continuing to grow. The longer it gets, the easier it is for it to find its natural style. After I dry it out of the shower, it actually parts itself. Today, I manually parted it off center and initially brushed it behind my ears but was then happy to let it do its thing and flop where it wanted to. Looking in the mirror at times, I became the sort of woman with pretty hair that I often envy in public. It is so affirming!

      It's so hard to keep up with all the goings on when you don't visit here for a while!   @Birdie, my condolences. Losing someone is never easy, but more so if they are taken before time.    @Ashley0616, I'm also sorry for your loss. My Cousin Count presently sits at 13 survivors from 17 born. It's scary, especially considering that I'm one of the older ones! I also sincerely hope that someday you get out of that darn dating revolving door too!   Just to prove that as one door closes another one opens, my wife and I became grandparents again today! A yet un-named girl born to my son and daughter in law, a couple of weeks early, but otherwise in perfect health. It's Girl City in my family; I have one son and two daughters, one daughter in law, and now two granddaughters. Oh, and a wife and a mother!

      Good morning   so much happened since my last visit and that was just yesterday.  Back to 4am today, off tomorrow my schedule bounces around all week but Friday morning I leave for my weekend of Lay ministry school.    let’s see, guy who wanted to see your DL, run away and block that one.  Doesn’t sound right to me. Sorry for your losses this week.  Always sad to loos a good friend they are so hard to come by, and same is true with cousins, although I never knew any of mine.     One thing I don’t have and never will is a LBD. Too old to do one any justice.  Besides where does one hide the 45?     Don’t meet a stranger without one!   well gotta try to walk the dog.  It’s raining but not cold.     and don’t take everything I say to heart.  Sometimes my sense of humor is a lot worse than I realize.  LOL   Willow

      Welcome to Trans Pulse, Sarah.  I think this site will live up to your expectations as a friendly, supportive and knowledgeable place.  I know that transition can be stressful and daunting and we've all been where you are now at some point.  I do hope that you are seeing, or have seen, a gender therapist or at least and M.D. to ensure that your hormone use is safe and appropriate.  We want everyone to be safe, because hormones can be dangerous if not done correctly with good supervision.  If you don;t have a gender therapist, that would be help to add to your tool kit, too.   Please ask any questions that come to mind.  The only thing we can't answer is about hormone dosages.  Please have a look around and enjoy your time here.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      This one is not that far "off the wall." They just consider us mentally ill anyway.  We need to be corrected somehow - kinda like the Chinese do with the Uyghurs.  Time to break out the pink triangles.

      hi i guess this is where i tell you about myself and some goings on. my quick and dirty trans history about 20 off years ago I confessed to my best friend about wanting to be a girl she was super supportive said she'd get everyone to use whatever name I want and treat me like one of the girls at the time I didn't know transitioning really existed the LGBT was really just an LG so I didn't think it was actually possible to more than cross dress and dismissed the idea and forgot about until 6 years ago I met a transwoman in a Discord community which and awoken 20 year old memories, a few years later after self debate I admitted to myself that I was trans eventually came out to a few people and in October of last year started taking hormones. The actually transitioning is taking time I duelmode mainly being my true self at home for right now. How I ended up here: I wasn't prepare for the hormones which have been a struggle wild mood swings and just constant anxiety attacks, I've only recently been able to clear my head and quell my anxiety with medication enough to function. I had some bad moment and alienated myself from some people dear to me and I'm questioning whether to keep going or not. I've been doing a lot to improve my situation picking myself up doing self care but I realize I can't do this on my own so I've been adding to my support network, people in my circles, support groups and communities like here. From what I read so far this feels like a wonderful community and I look forward to being apart of it. Thank you

      All I can do is shake my head. This will be followed by the other 19 R states soon enough. They are more persistent than piranha. A few days ago I received an email from a recruiter trying to recruit me to a hospital in Oklahoma. I told them that I was a transgender female and would not consider Oklahoma. The recruiter could have cared less.   Sadly, I am not sure the rest of the public really cares what happens to us. There is going to be some massive pain down the road regardless of who wins the national election. I think the next logical move is that they will try to roll back the insurance coverages we gained with private insurers.   Short of a huge blue wave hitting the country, they have zeroed in on us. I just wonder if there will be Schutzstaffel troops coming to take us away. Seems like the only missing piece.
