Sarah’s Story

“As soon as I made that transition, my life switched round too. And became so much more… full!”

Sarah has been unable to apply for a Gender Recognition Certificate, despite transitioning more than thirty years ago. At first, this was because all of the household bills she could have used for evidence were under her partner’s name.

However, she realised that she would face an additional barrier. She accessed medical treatment so long ago, and under the care of a GP, that she also doesn’t have the medical evidence needed to apply.

Because Sarah was not able to provide this evidence for a GRC, she was unable to marry her partner before he passed away.
