Mexico City Lawmakers Approve Transgender Rights Bill

Transgender FlagA bill that would legally allow transgender people to change their gender without a court order was approved by lawmakers.

The Washington Blade reports:

Members of Legislative Assembly of the Federal District, in which Mexico City is located, approved the measure by a 42-0 vote margin. Six lawmakers abstained from the vote on the measure that Mexico City Mayor Miguel Angel Mancera proposed. Manuel Granados Covarrubias of the Party of the Democratic Revolution, known by the Spanish acronym PRD, welcomed the proposal’s approval. “It eliminates cumbersome trials and judicial proceedings, procedures, to generate the administrative change of a legal action to which everyone has the right,” said Granados in a press release the Legislative Assembly of the Federal District released after lawmakers approved the measure. “Their dignity is also recognized.”

Since the mayor proposed it, it seems likely he will sign it. 🙂
