WE CAMPAIGN FOR SGD RIGHTS

Sex and/or gender diverse (SGD) people are made up from many differing groups including people who are intersex, transexed, transsexual, transgendered, androgynous, without sex and gender identity, cross dressers and people with sex and gender culturally specific differences. They are people who experience variations in physical presentation and social behaviour that is other than stereotypically male or female. Each group may have its own physical, psychological, social, legal and political issues that may not necessarily relate to any of the other groups.

Gender unspecified: Neither man nor woman.

The NSW Supreme Court is set to make a landmark decision changing the way the law deals with people who are neither male nor female. Redfern resident Norrie May-Welby is right at the centre of it.

Norrie made world news in 2010 after ‘they’ became the first person to be declared by a government agency neither male nor female. But the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages, acting on new legal advice, quickly revoked this status.
