As of July 1, transgender people can be identified by the correct sex on their death certificates in California.


The Respect After Death Act requires medical examiners or coroners to refer to legal documents such as a court order approving a name or gender change, a passport, a will, proof of clinical treatment for gender transition, an amended birth certificate, or a valid driver’s license to determine the sex listed on the death certificate.
