Greece adopts new law to permit change of gender status

Amidst strong opposition from the Greek Orthodox Church, the Greek government passed a legislation that will enable its citizens to determine and change their gender identity legally on all official documents without the need for psychiatric evaluation or medical intervention. The law will allow trans individuals to affirm their desired gender identity from the age of 15 and is aimed at squarely ending the marginalization of people whose perceived gender identity did not correspond with that assigned at birth.
