Transgender residents may get new birth certificates – New York – AP

Transgender New Yorkers may soon be able to get new birth certificates that accurately reflect their current sexual identity.
Under the proposed new plan, new birth certificates would only indicate a person’s current sexual identity.

New York City’s board of health is expected to decide today whether or not to put the proposal up for public comment.

Transgender people have long complained about having a hard time doing things that require a birth certificate.
