US Department: Gender ‘X’ now an option in US passports

The United States (US) issued its first passport with an "X" for sex on Wednesday, a significant move for persons who do not fit into the binary male or female categories. The State Department said that it has issued the first passport with an "X," and that the option would be accessible as normal for both abroad Americans' passports and birth certificates by early 2022. "As the passport is given, I would want to reiterate the State Department's commitment to promoting the freedom, dignity, and equality of all people, including LGBTQI+ individuals," State Department spokesman Ned Price said in a statement.
