DigitalThat's Not My Name That's My Number, 2021

Are we losing ourselves to numbers code, data identity are we not people regardless of age, gender sexuality? After 2 years a friend of mine had to go through months of emails and calls and yet again passed pillar to post. He then asked me to help him to try get it sorted. After a few hours and a complaint with reception I knew it could be done in minutes if someone was willing to stand up for rights. The card done by lunchtime, I wonder how many trans people did not attend college university or workplaces due to a name on register, name on card but for trans people it’s a dead name not a birth name. My friends mental health deteriorated quickly. Now with ID required for entry. An IT issue they say, I say you failed our confidentiality and got our numbers but not our name.
