Finland will update its transgender legislation in autumn, Prime Minister Sanna Marin promised at the Helsinki Pride parade on Saturday, where she said the reform carries personal significance because she had been raised in a “rainbow family.” Currently, a transgender person needs to present proof of sterilisation before being able to receive legal gender recognition, but the government would like to see the requirement abolished. According to the newspaper Helsingin Sanomat, the way paternity and maternity are recorded in the Population Information System will also change. There will be a separate record of paternity or motherhood, which can be changed if a person corrects their gender.
