Recognizing the rights of third gender
Last week, Australia made significant progress toward recognizing transgender rights. The country now makes it easier for its citizens to apply for passports that reflect a third gender - neither male nor female. Importantly, the government will no longer require citizens to present proof of gender reassignment surgery in order to change the gender on their passport from the gender on their birth certificate. India has included a third gender category on its passport application since 2005, however the label “E” for eunuch has been controversial. Bangladesh just added a third category this year as well, using the term “other.”

[USA] [Petition]
End discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity/expression
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Americans experience unnecessary and inhumane discrimination every day. Whether it's the risk of being deported because our marriages aren't recognized by the federal government, denied a job or fired from a job simply for who we are, bullied to death in schools, refused full parenting rights, or denied adequate and appropriate health care/coverage, LGBT Americans do not have access to the same civil rights as non-LGBT Americans.
Our country is better than this, and we ask the Obama Administration to take any and all steps necessary in order to make LGBT Americans fully equal in all matters governed by federal civil law in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and U.S. territories.
