New York’s current governor, Kathy Hochul, confirmed that the state will soon allow residents to choose ‘X’ as a gender marker on ID documents.
The change will go into effect on 24 June and is being implemented through the State’s Gender Recognition Act. New Yorkers will have the new option on their driver’s licence, learner permit, or other non-driver ID card at all of the state’s Department of Motor Vehicle offices.
Governor Hochul praised the “historic change” for being “another victory in our fight to help ensure equality and respect for the LGBTQ+ community.” “Every person, regardless of their gender identity or expression, deserves to have an identity document that reflects who they are,” she added. “My administration remains committed to ensuring that New York is a place of value, love and belonging for members of the LGBTQ+ community.” Existing documents will be eligible for change from ‘M’ or ‘F’ to ‘X’, with those getting new ones having the option during the application process.
