Sweden passes law to make it easier to change legal gender

Story by Reuter (17 April 2024)

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Sweden's parliament on Wednesday passed a law that will make it easier for people to change their legal gender and lower the age at which it is allowed to 16 years from 18 years, despite heavy criticism from within the government coalition.

Swedes have been able to change legal gender since 1972, but it can take many years and requires a thorough investigation and a doctor's diagnosis of gender dysphoria.

Under the new law, which will come into force next year, a shorter consultation with a doctor or a psychologist will suffice, along with approval from The National Board of Health and Welfare.

The new law will also decouple the process of legal gender change from medical procedures like sex reassignment surgery, which will still require a lengthier evaluation.

Backers of the bill say it's a modernisation of the existing law that will put Sweden closer to Nordic neighbours and many other European countries, which already have systems for people to determine their legal gender.
