More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  Transgender Birth Certificate - British Columbia (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:
    annieli

    Included in Miscellaneous Statutes Amendment Act last week, B.C. now issues a new birth certificate for transgender individuals without sex-change surgery.

    27  (1) This section applies if a person's birth has been registered in British Columbia and an amendment to the registration is desired respecting the person's sex designation.

    (2) A person may apply to the registrar general for an amendment to the sex designation on the person's birth registration by providing all of the following in the form required by the registrar general:

    (a) an application setting out the desired amendment;

    (b) a declaration, made by the applicant, stating that the applicant has assumed, identifies with and intends to maintain the gender identity that corresponds with the desired sex designation;

    (c) a statement from one of the following persons that confirms that the sex designation on the applicant's birth registration does not correspond with the applicant's gender identity:

    (i) a practising registrant of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of British Columbia;

    (ii) a practising registrant of the College of Psychologists of British Columbia;

    (iii) in the case of an applicant who resides outside British Columbia, a person who is practising and who is authorized, in another province or territory, to practise a health profession equivalent to that practised by a person referred to in subparagraph (i) or (ii);

    (d) in the case of a minor, the consent of all parents having guardianship and all other guardians of the minor.

    (3) The minister may waive or modify a requirement of subsection (2)

    (a) on application in the form required by the minister, made by the person desiring the amendment to the person's birth registration, and

    (b) if satisfied that the waiver or modification would be in the person's best interests.

    (4) On being satisfied that an application under subsection (2) is made in good faith and on payment of the prescribed fee, the registrar general must amend the person's birth registration.

    (5) A birth certificate issued after the making of an amendment under this section must be prepared as if the person's original birth registration had been made containing the sex designation as amended.

    Following complaints to human rights tribunals, many Canadian provinces are moving in this direction but are not yet ready to take Germany's approach of issuing a birth certificate without a M/F designation. This issue has received scant media coverage.

    Calif. Chrome was the favorite and there were no injuries so it was a good race. And, I'm really pleased that Chrome won because he was my pick.
