About

This website was created by the Massachusetts Trans Political Coalition (MTPC) in order to assist trans and gender nonconforming people in navigating the process around changing their name and gender marker in the state of Massachusetts. This website takes you through the steps of this process, and includes all necessary documents as well as instructions for obtaining these changes.

Founded in 2001, the MTPC is an advocacy, education, and community-building organization that works to end discrimination on the basis of gender identity and expression. This includes working towards the empowerment of all persons who have been, are being, or might be deprived of equal rights and/or fair treatment because of their gender expression or identity. MTPC is a fiscally sponsored 501c3 non-profit with one full-time staff, active Board, dedicated volunteers, and statewide chapters. MTPC does not engage in campaign or electoral politics.
