Oregon becomes first state to offer non-binary driver’s licenses!

Oregon becomes first state to offer non-binary driver’s licenses!

As reported in Time, Oregon has become the first state to offer a non-binary gender option on driver’s licenses. Effective July 1st, residents will be able to select an “X”, representing “not specified”, instead of an M or F as their gender—with no doctor’s verification needed!

According to reports, those speaking in favor of adding the third option outweighed those speaking against it at public hearings held regarding the decision, which was finalized by Oregon’s transportation commission. Hurray for Oregon for recognizing that everyone should be allowed accurate gender representation, and that not everyone’s gender is male or female/man or woman! Big thanks also to Jamie Shupe for initiating this!
