Oregon Becomes The First State To Allow Residents To Skip Gender Identity On License's

Oregon will soon become the first state to allow residents to skip a gender identity on their driver's licenses and identification cards.

State Department of Motor Vehicles officials say they have had no opposition to the change, which they first announced plans to carry out last summer.

Residents could change their licenses and ID cards beginning this summer.  Instead of “F” or “M”, their licenses would display “X” under sex.

Transgender residents say the change would make them feel safer as they hand over their licenses at restaurants, health clinics and airports.
