Dit artikel is ook in het Nederlands beschikbaar

The Kafkabrigade founded a complaints office to map gender registration difficulties. It was founded at the request of the Ministries of Safety & Justice, and Education, Culture and Science. For its complaints office, the Kafkabrigade is looking for stories of civilians who experienced problems with gender registration. The Kafkabrigade will then map the problems and possible solutions with the persons concerned on the basis of their stories.

Sex or gender registration (M/F) is still mandatory for many services, both with government and private organisations, even though this registration often is unnecessary for delivering or receiving that service. COC Netherlands has been arguing for the abolition of compulsory gender registration in official documentation, such as passports.

The Complaints Office Gender Registration of the Kafkabrigade will map a number of exemplary problems with gender registration. Concrete examples where civilians will not be able to use, or are in danger of not being able to use a service. Personal experiences from people will help the Kafkabrigade to chart which problems there are, which will help finding solutions. Stories and tips are also very welcome.

It is expected that transgenders, queers, and people with an intersex condition specifically will encounter problems. But everyone may experience problems with gender registration, prejudice or confusion. That is why the Kafkabrigade is also looking for practical examples of cis-genders having difficulties.

The Kafkabrigade has been founded to research red tape. People in those situations are confronted with various regulations, rules, and procedures at the same time. If those are not attuned, this can have unpleasant consequences. The Kafkabrigade uses a research and intervention method to trace and tackle bureaucracy. The problems of the involved citizen and entrepreneurs take centre stage.
