Petition Recognise nonbinary people in law

We call on the government to recognise nonbinary people in law as distinct from men and women, in the form of a third gender option on passports and birth certificates, the ability to change one's gender legally to a third option with a gender recognition certificate as trans men and women can, etc.

More details

The best estimate we have is that around 0.4% of people are nonbinary (EHRC), over 250,000 people in the UK, comparable to the number of Buddhists in the UK - yet we are not counted in the UK census. We are not protected by the Equality Act unless someone thinks we're trans, we are required to pretend to be men or women when getting married, companies are not required to provide toilets or changing rooms for us, when we're in prison we share it with people whose genders differ from our own.
