Gender Recognition Certificate (GRC)

Postby Jane_D_C » Thu Oct 04, 2012 7:43 am

I now have my GRC. I applied in mid-August. The hearing was last Friday September 28th.

For the information of others I suggest the following.

1. Read the website http://www.justice.gov.uk/tribunals/gen ... tion-panel carefully.
2. It is well worth ringing their help line to discuss the evidence you need to present. They were really helpful. The number is on their website under FAQ.
3. They are looking for evidence that you really do live in your acquired gender, so I sent them bits of evidence like house transfers, pay slips etc to show that I was consistently using my new name. They sent it all back.

I was just reading about this. Apparently they don't approve 40% of applications?! That seems quite bizarre: unless there really are a very large number of bogus applications, it seems that they're looking for excuses to not grant the certificates. Even Dr Barrett warned me that at this point at least my application probably wouldn't be successful based on his own experience, even though I seem to meet all the relevant criteria. So I'm left wondering what's the deal, and why they seem to make it so unnecessarily difficult?

A lot apply incorrectly or have no evidence. Or their medical report is inadequate.

When I applied I was the first batch in 2005 who were fast tracked activists who fought for it.

That was a special time and after 6 months it went to what it is now.

I had a Member of Parliament as a second and evidence of living in role ;) He helped along with others to get the legislation through.
The world's top specialist (at the time) Professor Richard Green wrote my Medical report - hehe
And had a leading human rights lawyer do the rest - those that took the UK Gov to court.

The GRP had no chance ;) I mean thats the thing make your application watertight like that and there is no debate. There was no way that they would have turned me down. And I didn't have 'surgery' for another 6 years! So at the time was anatomically .... as god made me ;)

Its all about the application. Give them no room for manoeuvre.

It sounds like having the right connections counts for everything! I'm wondering where I might find the right people to represent me...
