Gender Reassignment

Gender reassignment is undertaken when an individual feels that his birth gender is mismatched with his current gender identity. This specifically refers to individuals who intend to undergo or have already undergone medical treatment which alters the body, or to those who do not intend to undergo medical treatment but desire to permanently live in a different gender. People who have undergone gender reassignment are also sometimes called trans or transgendered. In some countries, a Gender Recognition Certificate may be processed to legally honor the gender reassignment.
