Gender X Comes to Colorado: Residents Can Choose Non-Binary Option on Driver’s Licenses

Colorado residents will be able to choose a non-binary gender identifier on their driver’s licenses by the end of the month, according to an emergency rule approved Thursday by the Colorado Department of Revenue.

Under the rule, approved by Department of Revenue Executive Director Michael Hartman, residents will have the choice starting Nov. 30 to use the letter “X” to identify a non-binary gender in favor of “M” for male and “F” for female. The identification, officials said, will be determined by them and their licensed treating medical or behavioral healthcare provider.
