ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) – A new gender marker could be coming to New York State licenses.
New York intends to offer non-binary gender identity of “X”.
The state said the move is a step to protect and advance the civil rights of New Yorkers who are transgender or gender on-conforming.
However the change may not happen right away. Court filings say it could take more than a year before DMV computers can automatically make the change.
More than a dozen states in the U.S. already offer “X” gender markers on drivers license.
