Transgender people hope for update to ID card policy

“The great thing about having changed my ID is that I no longer have to explain to other people whether the person on my ID is me.” This is how Huang Wei-chen (黃瑋晨) sums up changing the gender on his national identification card from female to male. It is reflected in the last word of the new name he has chosen for himself, chen (晨), which means “dawn,” and signifies the start of his new life. Huang was able to apply for the change after obtaining the required documents: two psychiatrists’ diagnoses and proof of undergoing gender confirmation surgery, the latter of which has been debated in Taiwan for more than a decade.
