'Gender identity' laws

In Chile since December of 2019 we have a law that guarantees no discrimination on the basis of 'gender identity' and regulates the change of name and legal sex. People can apply for a sex change from the age of 14. The law guarantees that trans-identified people will be treated with dignity and respect. It bans discrimination against trans-identified people and recognizes the progressive autonomy of girls, boys and teenagers.
