Gender identity laws in Argentina:

There is a Gender Identity Law in Argentina since 2012. It allows for changing the birth certificate without a mental condition diagnosis, surgical reassignment, or treatment of any kind, just expressing the desire to do it. There have been many cases of children under the age of 6 with gender identity changed. Blockers are used from 11 years old and hormonal treatments from 13 years old. If parents disagree, the judge may authorise the transition under the principle of the best interest of the child.
