A leaked government report says Boris Johnson will scrap plans to allow people to change their legal gender by ‘self-identifying’ as male or female.

In addition, the government is preparing to set out new safeguards to protect female-only spaces, such as changing rooms.

The move is likely to anger transgender activists who object to the current laws which require a medical diagnosis before a person can officially change gender.

However, in an attempt to placate LGBT groups, the government looks likely to ban so-called ‘gay cure’ therapy — which helps people who experience unwanted same-sex attraction.
