X Gender Marker Will Be Available On U.S. Passports Starting April 11

The Department of State has announced that starting on April 11, U.S. citizens will be able to select an X as their gender marker on their U.S. passport application, and the option will become available for other forms of documentation next year.

The Department of state called it “another milestone in our work to better serve all U.S. citizens, regardless of their gender identity.”  

Last June, they announced that U.S. passport applicants would be able to self-select their gender and were no longer required to submit any medical documentation, even if their selected gender differed from their other citizenship or identity documents. 

This change sets a precedent as the Department of State becomes the first federal government agency to offer the X gender marker on an identity document.
