Law Focus - Gender Marker Changes

Tonight’s show is on progressive legislation and processes around name and gender marker changes, for members of the LGBTQIA Plus community. The Department of Home Affairs have recently gazetted its Draft Identity Management Policy, partly in a bid to make South Africa’s identification system more inclusive. The document states that gender and sexual identity minorities are excluded, because the current laws and policies do not cater for changes in the gender/sex attribute of the gender identity system. We’ll be in conversation with Tish Lumos White and Sibusiso Kheswa who’re both very passionate in advocating for the rights of LGBTQIA Plus persons.
