New Zealand’s first transgender MP Georgina Beyer says the Government is “dithering” on legislation that would allow people to change the sex on their birth certificate, Newshub reports. Beyer, who served as a Labour MP from 1999 to 2007, is calling on the Government to pursue proposed changes to the Births, Deaths, Marriages and Relationships Registration Bill (BDMRR Bill) to help the trans community. The Bill was put off in February 2019 by former Internal Affairs Minister Tracey Martin, after a parliamentary committee wanted to include changes to the process for changing sex on birth certificates, which proved to be contentious.
