Liberating Identity

Australia recognizes third gender on passports

Instead of identifying gender with the traditional M or F, intersex people – individuals who do not identify as completely male or female, biologically – can list their gender as X in their travel docs. Transgender people – whose biological gender doesn’t match the way they see themselves – won’t be able to use the “X”, but will be able to choose male or female if they have a doctor’s statement that says they’re transitioning.
