If you’re looking to change your name or correct your gender marker on your IDs, the process will differ based on which IDs you want updated and which state you’re in! To find specific instructions for your state, check out the ID Documents Center at the National Center for Transgender Equality at this link: https://transequality.org/documents.

For folks in Colorado, the Colorado Name Change Project has detailed instructions for how to change your name and gender marker on your IDs at https://www.namechangeproject.org/. They also have a microgrant application that helps offset some of the costs associated with this process.

The process of legally changing your name and gender marker can be expensive, stigmatizing, and time-consuming, but there are plenty of resources to help you navigate this process. It’s important to remember that your name and gender are valid even if your ID doesn’t have the correct information!
