Judge R. Brooke Jackson of the United States District Court of Colorado rules in favor of an ‘X’ as the gender marker on the passport of non-binary and intersex individual, Dana Zzyym.
The ‘X’ may cause some issues during travel until the boarders are more familiar with the marker, but prior to this decision Dana was unable to travel, period. Saying that choosing an M or an F caused them discomfort, even pain.
We’re happy for Dana, and look forward to more instances where gender identity and our bodies are not barriers to a full life.
