Washington State Allows Gender X On Birth Certificates

The Olympian reports:

[Washington] State Department of Health officials announced a new rule on Thursday that will allow people to change their sex designation on their Washington birth certificate from male or female to X.

The rule takes effect on Jan. 27, and is a non-binary option for people who feel they are neither female or male or both.

“After receiving and considering public comment, the agency determined that this rule change will provide individuals with the option to have a birth certificate that aligns with their gender identity,” stated a Department of Health news release.
