State of Maine BMV Finally Allows Gender Marker Change Without SRS

Recommended Posts

Guest Ney'ite

After much diligent lobbying, fighting, begging, pleading, you name it, by my lawyer's firm and other entities, the State of Maine has FINALLY updated their policy to allow for Gender Marker Changes on Driver's Licenses without costly SRS, in fact, without any surgery at all. And within the last half hour of this post, they just posted the brand new form on the State of Maine home page. My lawyer did mention that BMV has said they have the brand new forms at the various branches, and that staff has been trained.

Here is the link to the form in both PDF and DOC on the State of Maine web site:

Aw, I sure hope so! It is not fair to have to needlessly out ourselves, all for the sake of some stuffy politicians who are stuck in the Dark Ages (in my opinion).

That's so cool (and convenient)! Here we just have to have a Department of Licensing form filled out by a Doc who's in the State of Washington. No surgical requirements. Getting mine filled out on my next appointment, Feb 21st.

That's pretty interesting, and will be insanely helpful if/when I move back home. Glad to be from such a kick-butt stage. GO MAINE.

It's not quite *that* easy here in Indiana, but you don't require surgery. You only require a letter from *any* doctor under whose care you've been treated. It needs to be worded precisely like this:

I, <your physician's name>, License No. <#>, <Medical License Jurisdiction(state), DEA No. <#>, am the physician of <your name>, with whom I have a doctor/patient relationship and whom I have treated.

<your name> has had appropriate clinical treatment for gender transition to female.

I declare under penalty of perjury under the laws of the United States that the foregoing is true and correct.

<Physician's Signature>

<physician's printed name>

<Date>

hth,

      I agree that we may well not be much better off here in the US.  There is definitely a backlash and in some areas or with certain demographics our safety doesn't exist.  Fortunately there are also many who are much more accepting than ever.  I have to look at that bright side. A bit of a Pollyanna ?   Hugs,   Charlize

      Sad to say, this is running about the same as it is here in the U.S. and may not be as bad in a couple of places, but still it is pretty bad overall.  Great Britain has about the same stats on H8ers, minus the KKK of course, but the Fundamentalist and Roman Catholic influences are used as the same excuses to just plain hate from what I have heard.

      https://inews.co.uk/news/uk/third-transgender-people-victim-hate-crime/   This is very troubling, but given the very negative press and public opinions, hardly surprising.  The question is, what, if anything, will be done about it?   Carolyn Marie

      Seat belts are not required but highly advised.  Actually i took me time to feel much and even then changes were slow and subtle.  Enjoy your journey!   Hugs,   Charlize

      Congratulations, get ready for the ride and hold on. I started HRT about 14 months ago at 41. I have loved every minute of my journey thus far. I won't lie, it's a roller coaster. Good luck on your journey and do keep us posted.    Hugs    Shawnna
