New York (USA)

A.B. 9409 would limit the scope of information disclosed in a published notice of change of name.  It would allow minimal information to be revealed if the petitioner filed the change of name “to conform name to his or her gender identity or gender expression.”  The legislation, if passed, would effectively allow men to transition without having a public record of their life as a man.  This would have adverse consequences for women in cases where the man has a criminal history.

A.B. 9409.

  1. Glad to know when these things up in New York. Since our legislature doesn’t get much done, there aren’t many news outlets that cover it well. But things can surprisingly come through under the radar.
