Yo, my name is Rae and I was wondering if it is possible to just change your gender marker and not your name. My birth name is RaeLin and I cannot care less about it staying like that, I just don’t want to spend money as well on changing my name. My therapist said that he was unsure if I HAD to change my name in order to change my gender marker so i’m just looking for information. I live in New York State if that helps.
Not that I’m aware of. Plenty of people I know have had gender changes but they kept their names.

HOW CAN WE BE HAPPY ?
Once a group of 50 people was attending a seminar.
Suddenly the speaker stopped and decided to do a group activity. He started giving each one a balloon. Each one was asked to write his/her name on it using a marker pen. Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room.
Now these delegates were let in that room and asked to find the balloon which had their name written, within 5 minutes. Everyone was frantically searching for their name, colliding with each other, pushing around others and there was utter chaos.
At the end of 5 minutes no one could find their own balloon.
Now each one was asked to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it.
Within minutes everyone had their own balloon.
The speaker began— exactly this is happening in our lives. Everyone is frantically looking for happiness all around, not knowing where it is.
Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Give them their happiness; you will get your own happiness.
And this is the purpose of human life.
