Colorado to allow use of X as sex identifier on driver’s licenses starting this month
Residents in Colorado who do not identify as male or female will be allowed to choose the letter X to represent their gender on driver’s licenses and identification cards beginning later this month.
The Colorado Department of Revenue said Thursday the policy was created after judges ruled twice in favor of people who tried to change their sex on government identification.
Starting Nov. 30, those getting a driver’s license or ID card will be able to choose among M (male), F (female) and X (nonbinary) as determined by them and a licensed medical or behavioral health care provider.
Those wanting to make the chance must fill out and present a form that is signed by their medical or behavior professional. The choice will then appear as the sex identifier on driver’s license or ID card.
