So I'm the same as everyone else here. I go by Michael, but when I tried to set up my payment information there was, of course, a mismatch. Who should I contact?

hi, i am transgender and i don't feel comfortable using my deadname. upwork demand official id verification and it is hard for transgender people in egypt as is to change our names on official documents. i can send the official document and verify that it's me via video call. but, is it possible for upwork as an inclusive community to help me not use my dead name on the platform here? thank you.

I'm a transgender freelancer and I'd also like to use my preferred name as much as possible with clients. Thank you for any help you can provide!

I have recently changed my name and gender, (male to a female). My current user id is my old name. Now that I am no longer that name, but I am a new name, is it possible to change the user id to "my new name" instead of the current "dead name"? I do not believe it would be appropriate for transgender women to have their old name as their user id.
