States in Mexico allow gender self-determination

Nayarit became the third state after Michoacan and Mexico City to allow changes in birth certificates due to gender identity reasons. The law reform will allow transgender people to request and initiate changes in their birth certificates at civil registry and municipal offices. The new law also specifies that no civil registry judge will be able to deny requests for reasons of conscience.
