British government will modified the way parents are listed on passports. From no w on the passport applications will contain additional options for “parent one” and “parent two”, as well as the traditional “mother” and “father”.
BBC has the report:
UK passport forms are being updated to include options for same-sex parents.
New forms including “parent one” and “parent two” alongside “mother” and “father” are expected to be brought in by the end of the year.
The Home Office says the additional terms will ensure passports are issued safely to the right person.
Gay rights groups say the current form is “discriminatory” but family values campaigners say the changes denigrate the roles of mothers and fathers.
The proposals also include sex-free passports to allow transgender people to opt out of identifying themselves as either male or female.
