Introduced in theHouse of Assemblyon02/11/2016
Precis

This Act aims to remove discrimination experienced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex or queer (LGBTIQ) South Australians. This Act also provides for a simpler, more direct and less invasive process for people to change their registered sex or gender identity on the formal record.

The Act also requires that Magistrates Court approval must be sought for a child under the age of 18 seeking to register a change of sex or gender identity. The Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages must retain all historical information preceding a change in sex or gender identity on the register in addition to limiting access to this historical information as a privacy protection measure.
