ID Accurately Reflecting One’s Gender Identity Is a Human Right
This past week our nation joined others around the globe in celebrating International Human Rights Day, which marked the 64th anniversary of the U.N. Declaration of Human Rights, signed on December 10, 1948. This document declares that “inherent dignity” and “equal and inalienable rights” are the foundation for a just, peaceful, and free world. Decades later these principles continue to guide human rights policies established around the world, acting as a foundation for the evolving global understanding of what it means to acknowledge the equality of all people.

The highs and the lows
Nuntita Khampiranon, better known as Belle Nuntita, wowed audiences on March 13, last year, when she stood on the stage of the ever-popular Thailand’s Got Talent TV show. The 29-year old walked out – looking stunning and all-woman – and started singing like a trained songstress. Her voice was soothingly feminine and note-perfect. But then, halfway through the performance, came something which had barely ever been seen – or heard – before. Nuntita ‘switched voice’ completely and began to sing in a powerful and moving masculine tone, octaves lower.
