State Dept. liberalizes passport policy for transgenders
The State Department has introduced new policy guidelines on changing the sex marker on American passports. When a passport applicant presents a doctor's certification that he or she has undergone treatment for gender transition, their passport will be updated to accurately reflect their sex. Sex reassignment surgery is no longer required to change the gender on an American passport. More information here from the Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund, and here are the new policy guidelines.
