Germany's Gender Laws Need Overhaul After Trans Woman Told She Can Only Be Recognised As Child's Father, Say LGBT Rights Activists
Germany needs a drastic overhaul of gender laws after a transgender woman has been told she can only be legally recognised as her child's father, LGBT+ advocacy groups have said. Campaigners said the decision is damaging to the well-being of children with trans parents and discriminatory to the community as a whole. The woman, who cannot be identified, changed her sex in 2012 and has been in a registered civil partnership since September 2015.
