. The U.S. Will Add A Third Gender Option On Passports « JO LEE MAGAZINE

NPR -Starting immediately, an applicant for a U.S. passport can simply check “M” or “F” as their gender – without needing to provide medical certification if that gender doesn’t match their other documents. And soon, applicants will have the option to select a gender option that isn’t male or female, the State Department said Wednesday.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced the changes as “further steps toward ensuring the fair treatment of LGBTQI+ U.S. citizens, regardless of their gender or sex.”
