House of Deputies of the Chilean Congress clears Gender Identity bill

The House of Deputies of the Chilean Congress have approved a bill that will allow transgender persons to legally change their names and gender markers on official documents. Change in gender identity will not require prior surgery or a court order. The bill does not seek to extend any of these rights to minors. It will not be introduced in the Chilean Senate for vote.
