(Worthy News) – The U.S. State Department announced Wednesday it has issued the first U.S. passport with an X-gender marker for non-binary, intersex, and gender non-conforming persons.
In a release posted to the department website, spokesman Ned Price said the move follows up on a commitment Secretary of State Antony Blinken made in June to make the third gender marker available, “another step toward ensuring the fair treatment of LGBTQI+ U.S. citizens, regardless of their gender or sex.”
Price said the State Department will be offering the option to all routine passport applicants, once system and form updates are completed early next year. The department also will provide updates and information on its website. [ Source: VOA News (Read More…) ]
