  • Status is not correct
  • Status is not correct "As the sources indicate, since 2011 the procedure for changing one's legal gender isn't easy (requires documents confirming GID from two doctors), but surgery is no longer a prerequisite for the change to occur. Only a diagnosis of GID is needed."
