Hundreds of services keep our personal informations in their databases. Those informations are sometimes public to other people on the Internet.

Changing public identity, names and gender, is one of the complicated tasks of gender transition. In most countries in the world, there are many legal obstacles. But another difficulty is that most services assume their clients names and gender cannot change.

In our opinion, a company or administration inclusive to trans people should :

  • allow people to update their names and gender with a simple form and without asking legal proof
  • not force people to disclose they are trans to other users, clients or service's employees
  • in particular, never disclose their former name
