  • Status is not correct "Status is illegal. Curently there's a law in Hungary that prohibits intersex and transgender people from changing their gender on documents and by this banning medical tradition "
  • Status is not correct "Changing the gender in official papers is prohibited as per the constitution. (I think since 2020)"
  • Status is not correct "Legal gender recognition is clearly banned, trans and intersex people cannot change their name and gender marker in official documents since 2020. The fact that they are protected against dismissal, refusal of services, violence etc. does not change this."

Revision by Notdog1996. It is not ambiguous. It is just plainly illegal.
