X Marks the Spot!

The recent change to Australian passports (see my earlier post here), enabling gender to be marked on passports as X continues to be be clarified as groups and the government put more material in the public domain.  oii Australia (Intersex in Australia) was an advisor to the Minsiterial Panel on this policy and has posted a really nice overview on their website.

They note that the qualification to receive an X sex designation on your passport if you wish it is a letter from your doctor stating that you live as a person of indeterminate, unknown or non-specified gender*. Anyone can apply so long as they have a willing doctor.

The full post is well worth a read - see it here.
