In the past, Nevadans seeking gender classification changes were required to go through the courts or had to prove there were errors on the documents.Now an applicant can submit an affidavit and either a supplementary affidavit or other verifiable evidence to change the gender stated on a birth certificate, the release said.

In other words no sharing of personal, private medical information required.

Under Nevada’s new regulations, an individual born in Nevada can get a new birth certificate issued with a corrected gender marker if they submit (1) their own affidavit stating their gender and requesting that the gender marker should be corrected on their certificate, and (2) a second affidavit from someone else who knows them, or other verifiable evidence, confirming the facts in their affidavit. The second affidavit can be from anyone who has personal knowledge of the applicant’s gender, meaning anyone who knows the applicant’s gender firsthand through a personal, familial, medical, or professional relationship. These affidavits can confirm transition-related medical or mental health treatment or otherwise confirm an individual’s gender identity and the gender they live as every day.

VICTORY: Nevada passes the most progressive birth certificate gender change policy in the nation!
