According to an executive order issued by Taiwan's Ministry of the Interior in 2008, two certificates of diagnosis by psychiatrists and a certificate of surgery to complete the removal of a full set of sexual organs are required to change gender.
Lawyer Xu Xiuxuan mentioned that at the end of September this year, the small E case, also represented by the lawyer group of the companion league, won the whole victory, in the small E case judgment, the court clearly pointed out that forcing people to change their sex must be removed before the sex, has violated the principle of legal reservation, and infringe the parties' right to health and personality.
"Whether it's Yu Yu and her family, or the legal team of the league, our wish is very ordinary, which is to hope that the public will see transgender as a natural part of society," Mr. Xu said.
When the judge asked the parties whether they agreed to order the suspension of the proceedings, the court heard the constitutional interpretation ex officio, and both parties expressed their delight.
There is a sustainable focus on the progress of the case, and it is expected that the judge will propose a constitutional interpretation and make a decision at the level of the chief justice, with the expected impact reaching all transgender persons.
If the judge decides to appeal for a constitutional interpretation, the judge will then write a brief asking the Constitutional Court to confirm the status of the law.
If the judge decides not to release the constitution, the case will continue.
