Correcting the Gender Marker on an Ohio Birth Certificate

On December 16, 2020 a federal judge in Ray v. McCloud struck down Ohio’s policy that prohibited transgender people born in Ohio from correcting the gender markers on their Ohio birth certificates.

To comply with the Court’s order, the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) has established new procedures that allow transgender people to correct the gender or “sex” marker on Ohio birth certificates.

The ACLU and Lambda Legal have put together a FAQ handout on the procedure.
