Right to change legal gender: Ambiguous from Sep 23, 2021 to now.
The decision was the result of a lawsuit filed by Xiao E, who was denied the right to change her gender on her national ID card. Under the archaic legislation, transgender people were required to surgically remove their reproductive organs in order to legally change their gender. The Taipei High Administrative Court ruled the requirement was unconstitutional on Thursday (23 September). They also cited that the plaintiff had provided the necessary requirements to undergo the process of legally changing her name without being subjected to surgery. Unfortunately, this ruling will only effect Xiao E. Other trans individuals looking to legally change their gender – without “proof of surgery” – will have to wait for the regulations to be revised or pursue legal action.

Same-sex adoption: Ambiguous from Jun 26, 2019 to now.
Adoption and foster care are regulated by the Legge 184/1983. Adoption is in principle permitted only to married couples who must be of the opposite sex. According to Italian law, there are no restrictions on foster care. In a limited number of situations, the law provides for "adoption in particular cases" by a single person, however, and this has been interpreted by some courts, including on the appeal court level, to include the possibility of stepchild adoption for unmarried (opposite-sex and same-sex) couples.

Right to change legal gender: Legal, surgery not required from Aug 1, 2016 to now.
On 25 November 2015, a law was proposed that would allow transgender people to change their legal name and sex. On 19 May 2016, the Chamber of Deputies passed the Gender Identity Law (Spanish: Ley de Identidad de Género). One day later, the Chamber of Senators passed the measure by simple majority votes. On 21 May 2016, the legislation was signed into law by Vice President Álvaro García Linera, and it took effect on 1 August 2016. In October 2016, the Bolivian Congress debated whether to repeal it. The law allows individuals over 18 to legally change their name, sex and photography on legal documents. A psychological test proving that the person knows and voluntarily assumes the change of identity is required, but sex reassignment surgery is not. The process is confidential and must be carried out before the Civil Registry Service. The processing of the new documentation will take 15 days. The change of name and sex will be reversible once, after which they cannot modify these data again.
