Driver’s licenses in New York will offer third gender option in 2021, beyond

There will be a new option on driver’s licenses in New York State.

The state will move to offer a nonbinary gender marker of ‘X’ on licenses. Historically there have only been two options.

The move by New York comes after a lawsuit brought by a transgender New York City resident.

Officials say that it could take upwards of a year for DMV computers to handle or process the change automatically.

The lawsuit remains in court.
