The United States issues gender-neutral passports
From April 11, U.S. citizens will be able to select the gender “X” in their passport applications.
From next month, U.S. citizens will be able to select the “X” for the third gender when applying for a new passport. “This is another milestone in the great service to all American citizens regardless of their gender identity,” US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said Thursday. “From April 11, U.S. citizens will be able to choose X as their gender when applying for a U.S. passport.” The ministry was the first U.S. federal agency to “issue X as a gender identifier in an identity document.”
Instead of “M” being “male” (male) or “F” “female” (female), those who do not identify themselves with these two genders can then enter “X”. In the summer of last year the Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced the new rules. In October, the authority issued the first passport with the entry “X”. Gender identity takes many forms: Not all people classify themselves as male or female.
