California recognizes a third gender

Written by 

 

California governor signed the bill into law that allows recognition of a third gender.

As I told you two weeks ago, California lawmakers approved a bill to recognize a third gender. It missed Governor's signature, and there it is, we have it!

California became the first US state to officially recognize a third gender. This will allow:

To identify yourselves as non-binary on identity documents issued by the state (driver's license, birth certificates).

To ease gender and sex change processes by removing requirements such as a doctor's statement or a court appearance.

This signature which recognizes a third gender shows us that gender identity continues to gain ground towards recognition and understanding.
