Transgender Inquiry Summary of Submissions

The Human Rights Commission’s Transgender Inquiry published a Summary of Submissions received from the first round of public consultation. The Transgender Inquiry has looked at three key areas: personal experiences of discrimination; difficulties accessing health services; and the barriers transgender people face when trying to have their gender status legally recognised on documents like birth certificates and passports. The Summary of Submissions was used as a discussion document for a second round of public meetings in April.

Any comments are very welcome. If possible, please send them to jackb@hrc.co.nz (or phone 09 375 8647) by Monday 14 May.

The Transgender Inquiry will produce a final report in September.
