WASHINGTON, D.C. – For all you persons who are not men and not women, you can now get yourself a U.S. passport that denote an “X” for your gender, the federal government announced today.

Ned Price, Department Spokesperson:

The Department of State continues the process of updating its policies regarding gender markers on U.S. passports and Consular Reports of Birth Abroad (CRBAs) to better serve all U.S. citizens, regardless of their gender identity.  As the Secretary announced in June, the Department is moving towards adding an X gender marker for non-binary, intersex, and gender non-conforming persons applying for a U.S. passport or CRBA.

The Department has issued the first U.S. passport with an X gender marker.  We look forward to offering this option to all routine passport applicants once we complete the required system and form updates in early 2022.  We will provide updates and information on our website: travel.state.gov/gender.

The Department also continues to work closely with other U.S. government agencies to ensure as smooth a travel experience as possible for all passport holders, regardless of their gender identity.

I want to reiterate, on the occasion of this passport issuance, the Department of State’s commitment to promoting the freedom, dignity, and equality of all people – including LGBTQI+ persons.

    Glamourizing mental illness instead of treating it isn’t cool. These degenerates need to be removed from society.

          If it was my son or son-in-law, I wouldn’t want him executed or put into an institution. Why does it bother you so much?
