Icelands national registry finally updates it’s gender options

About a year and a half since Iceland passed it’s Gender Determination Law, which allowed individuals to register their gender as non-binary, the national register has finally updated its systems and made that option available.

Prior to the 2019 legislation, there were only two gender options available, male or female. The new law means that trans and non-binary individuals in Iceland no longer have to go through invasive and lengthy medical processes to change their legally recognises gender.

Due to the change in laws, they now have access to trans-specific healthcare and the ability to change their gender identity as the national registry using the new third gender option of “x”.
