Nevada becomes 10th state to offer gender-neutral licenses

Tue, Apr 23, 2019 (3:07 p.m.)

Nevada is joining a handful of states by offering gender-neutral driver's licenses and ID cards.

The state Department of Motor Vehicles announced this week that it will allow residents to choose gender "X'' on their license or ID instead of an "M'' for male or "F'' for female.

DMV Director Julie Butler says the agency is committed to being inclusive and understands some people don't identify as either male or female.

The National Center for Transgender Equality says Nevada joins nine other states and the District of Columbia in offering the gender-neutral licenses and cards.

State officials say a gender change to a license or ID must be made in-person at a DMV office.
