Transgender Support

The WA Govt funded, Equal Opportunity Commission has called for changes to laws to give equal opportunity to the transgender community. Commissioner Yvonne Henderson said: “The transition process including expensive genital reconstruction surgery required for people to obtain a Gender Reassignment Certificate can be dangerous and may take years to complete. In that time period transgender people need to be protected from the distressing discrimination that can be encountered during the transition process.”
