Uruguay parliament approved sex change law

On October 12, 2009, the Uruguayan Parliament unanimously approved legislation providing rules for individuals seeking to change their gender identity. The legislation allows an individual to undergo a sex change at age 18, and allows the person to change his or her name and sexual identity on any official documents, including those dealing with marriage and travel.
