Study Abroad and Gender Identity


A recently passed law in the US allows for your passport to reflect your gender identity. It requires a letter from your physician stating that you have had appropriate clinical treatment. "Clinical treatment," in this case, means whatever may be appropriate for the individual. It no longer specifies surgery, but instead simply a clinical judgement call on the part of the physician.
