Nonbinary genders legally recognised in Oregon, USA

mxactivist:

It’s a brand new day for nonbinary, genderqueer, transgender, and gender nonconforming people all over the nation.

In a historic move sure to challenge federal policy, an Oregon circuit court ruled on Friday that a resident could legally change their gender to nonbinary.

“As far as we know, this may be the first ruling of its kind in the U.S.,” said Transgender Law Center’s Legal Director Ilona Turner in an email to the Daily Dot. “This is an important step toward ensuring that nonbinary members of our community have access to identity documents that reflect who they are, just like everyone else.”
