Argentina’s Security Ministry is allowing transsexual members of federal police and security forces to be recognized under the gender that they’ve adopted. The new ministry resolution also lets transsexuals wear the uniforms and use the facilities matching their gender. The order affects members of the federal, naval and airport police and the gendarmerie.

Also, yesterday Argentina’s Congress approved the new Gender identity law that allows trans people to change their names in all official documents and have their gender recognized. The law specifies that no medical intervention is required for this (neither psychiatric nor surgical) and instead, the change is based on the person’s life history. Now the law must be approved by the Senate to be in use (which some anticipate might happen as early as next month).
