US issues first gender ‘X’ passport that’s not male or female to Navy veteran
Daily Mirror says the United States has issued its first-ever gender ‘X’ passport after a Navy veteran has been campaigning for the option since 2015.
The new passports are designed to give nonbinary, intersex and gender-nonconforming people a marker other than male or female on their travel document, the US State Department said.
They did not identify the holder of the first gender ‘X’ passport, but civil rights organisation Lambda Legal confirmed it was their client Dana Zzyym.
