The Family Court of Australia has ruled that trans youth will no longer have to seek to access Hormone Replacement Therapy via the courts. Until now, parents could not consent to a medical procedure for their child if it was non-therapeutic, there was a significant risk of making the wrong decision, and it had irreversible consequences. This included Hormone Replacement Therapy. Due to the new ruling, trans youth will now be able to access hormone therapies with permission from their parents or guardians, and their doctor. The ruling was a response to Re Kelvin, a legal case brought forward by the father of a 16-year-old transgender boy, to determine whether the Family Court should actually be involved in the process of hormone treatment for trans youth.
