Young people (under 18 years old) have the right to legal gender reassignment


Three years ago, the Ministry of Interior was notified that due to Denmark’s obligations towards international treaties, they had to allow transgender young people (under 18 years old) to receive legal documents stating their new gender. Now, the ministry has finally decided to react and implement this right

  • According to the European Convention on Human Rights’ article on the right to respect for private and family life, “if a transgender person under the age of 18 has been offered and has undergone gender reassignment treatment, the person in question will also have a right to change their legal gender.” 
  • The minister will have the CPR legislation changed and reopen a total of 16 cases from the period of September 2014 to summer 2023.
