Gender reassignment

The Equality Act 2010 states: ‘A person has the protected characteristic of gender reassignment if the person is proposing to undergo, is undergoing or has undergone a process (or part of a process) for the purpose of reassigning the person's sex by changing physiological or other attributes of sex.’

‘A reference to a transsexual person is a reference to a person who has the protected characteristic of gender reassignment.’
