Nevada is now allowing gender neutral IDs.
The state’s DMV announced that residents can now choose male, female, and “X” when registering for driver’s licenses or ID cards. The change is a result of “a years-long effort” to accommodate transgender residents and those who don’t identify as male or female. Nevada residents would traditionally have to get a court order to change their gender identity on legal documents, which can be a timely and expensive process.
A 2015 survey suggests that only 11% of Trans Americans have their preferred name and gender on their ID.
Nevada is the 10th state to permit gender neutral driver’s licenses and IDs. Several other states and New York City have also allowed gender neutral birth certificates.
