Employees should be given two email addresses in the work place so they can swap their gender identities on different days.

The charity have put forward new guidance for companies competing for a spot on its workplace equality index.

A form sent out to employers hoping for a spot on Stonewall’s 2023 index was obtained by the Telegraph.

The answers on the form are looked at by Stonewall who then put forward a top 100 employers list.

In last year’s top 100 list a number of Government departments featured including NHS England, several emergency response services and ten universities.

One of the questions featured on this year’s questionnaire asks employers how they will “enable non-binary employees to have their identities recognised on all employee-facing workplace systems”.

The guidance below the question says “you will receive more marks if at least one example is specific to gender fluid people, for example the ability to have multiple pass cards with different forms of gender expression or linked email accounts/intranet accounts with different names and photos”.

It also suggests they “consider removing gender markers and titles” from systems.

Transgender activist and GB News regular Debbie Hayton criticised employers funding the charity, saying employers still handing cash over to Stonewall should "attract ridicule”.

Rabbi Zvi Solomons tweeted “The lunacy has gone too far.”

Last month Stonewall urged the global sporting community to “stand up and call out the criminalisation and persecution” of LGBTQ+ people in Qatar at the upcoming World Cup.

The leading LGBTQ+ charity made the plea at the launch of its ninth annual ‘Rainbow Laces’ campaign.

Same-sex relationships are criminalised in Qatar and Stonewall hopes issues can be highlighted while the spotlight is on the Gulf state for the World Cup, which begins next month.

Liz Ward, director of programmes at Stonewall, said: “As we approach the 2022 Men’s World Cup, we must remember that Qatar is a country where LGBTQ+ people are persecuted simply for being themselves. Sadly, this year’s tournament is not safe for everyone, which is why it’s so important to see players and fans stand up to be counted.

“The World Cup is a vital moment for the global sporting community to stand up and call out the criminalisation and persecution of LGBTQ+ people in Qatar.”
