19 December 2016   |    News
On Sunday, December 11th we held an all-day Equal Recognition: Non-binary seminar. The aim of the day was to bring together non-binary community members and activists with lawyers, academics and other professionasls with knowledge and expertise in this area to start thinking about how non-binary legal gender recognition could and should work in Scotland.
The day was split into two sections – in the morning session, we heard presentations from a range of speakers, talking about topics such as what they wanted from the new legislation, what impact non-binary legal recognition would have on existing laws, and what could be learned from international examples in arguing for non-binary recognition.
In the afternoon, there were three simultaneous workshops – two focused on academic and legal discussions, and one focused on non-binary activism.
