See those states in red?
Those are states that currently don’t allow transgender people to change their legal sex.
Ohio, Idaho, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Tennessee. Puerto Rico, a U.S. territory, has the same policy.
Sign this petition at the official White House website, asking for all transgender people to have the right to legally change their gender.
The petition needs 100,000 signatures by March 22, 2014 to get an official response. Signing up is incredibly quick and only takes a moment, and you don’t even have to be a US citizen.
Please help transgender people complete this vital part of their transition all across America.
EDIT FEBRUARY 21st:
I’m floored by the number of people who’ve already reblogged this and signed the petition!
I’ve gotten several asks questioning what the purple and green states on this map mean-what I understand is that the purple states are states that require an individual to have gone through hormone therapy before they can change their gender, and the green states have no requirements. I could be wrong.
Thank you all so much for your support!
