Beginning January 1 in New York City, non-binary and gender-nonconforming people can choose to change their gender to “X” on official city documents by submitting their own affidavit.

This comes after New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio signed a new law adding the ability to select a third gender on birth certificates without needing a letter from a health-care provider.

According toDe Blasio, “New Yorkers should be free to tell their government who they are, not the other way around. You be you. Live your truth. And know that New York City will have your back.”

With this development, New York follows the states of California, Washington, New Jersey and Oregon in passing such legislation.
