Shupe made history previous year when he became the first person in the U.S.to win the right to legally identify as non-binary. She said the move is a step towards "a society that upholds the rights, liberties and dignity of each of its people".
Gender non-binary residents will soon be able to select "X" for non-specified gender when they apply for their identification cards.
"I very much plan to head to the nearest DMV and ask for that ID to be corrected on July 3rd", Jamie Shupe, an Army veteran who successfully petitioned for the non-binary gender option, told Reuters.
The rule, passed by the state Transportation Commission, goes into effect on July 3. Reporting for the Oregonian at the time of the ruling, Parks wrote that the national Transgender Law Center was not aware of any similar victories in the United States. "Removing barriers for people is critical to helping all of us live healthy, productive lives". Following Shupe's win, at least 12 other people in OR and California have changed their gender designation to non-binary OR agender.
The new measure has consequently been welcomed by Oregonians who do not conform to traditional gender roles-a diverse group that includes people who also describe themselves as gender-fluid, genderqueer, gender non-conforming, and transgender. And there are quite a few of us: According to the results of a GLAAD survey released earlier this year, 12 percent of millennials identify as trans or gender non-conforming.
For those who don't know, a non-binary gender means an individual does not identify with either the "male" or "female" label.
OR officials said they got little opposition to the change at a public hearing or in comments.
Australia and New Zealand have already have the option to choose "X" on their passports, and passport applicants in India can pick Male, Female or Eunuch.
One commissioner said, "I hope those who will use "X" as an identifier will feel an element of comfort moving forward". OR beat to the punch California, where a broader bill is moving through the legislature to allow a gender-neutral choice on licenses and other documents, such as birth certificates.
