GENDER IS NOT A BINARY ISSUE





GENDER IS NOT A BINARY ISSUE

3 April 2014

The High Court decision to allow people in NSW to have no specific gender recorded on their birth certificates reflects the spirit of the NSW Anti-Discrimination Act, according to Anti-Discrimination Board of NSW President Stepan Kerkyasharian.

The High Court upheld a previous decision that people should be allowed to register as neither male nor female on basic documents. The case was initiated by Norrie, after the NSW Registrar of Births Deaths and Marriages reversed its original decision to allow the ?non-specific?

designation.

?This provides legal recognition that gender is not simply a binary issue,? Mr Kerkyasharian said. ?It is a very important step in reducing the marginalisation of people who are neither male nor female.?

?With this decision, they will no longer have to be labelled one way or the other at birth, but can make the decision in their own time about how they wish to be identified.

?Recognising the diversity of people and gender is also in the spirit of the NSW Anti-Discrimination Act, which makes transgender discrimination unlawful.?
