Tshepo Ricky Kgositau applied to the Civil and National Registration office in Gaborone, Botswana to change her documentation in the national register from male to female, as she argues that the State has a duty to realize the constitutional protection of rights and amend her Omang (the identity document), as “her birth-assigned gender does not correspond with her internal and individual experience of gender”. Tshepo’s application was denied and she sued the State for this right to change her gender marker.
