An X will appear instead of M or F in or driver records and on the driver license, instruction permit or ID card.
Thursday's move isn't the only one in OR granting rights to transgender people with regard to identification documents. The new policy represents a unanimous move Thursday by the Oregon Transportation Commission, reports Reuters, and goes into effect July 1.
Shupe, an OR resident, is an Army veteran who was designated male at birth (DMAB) but began to transition in 2013.
Gender identity has become a major flashpoint across the USA in places like North Carolina, which passed a bill forcing students to use toilets according to the sex listed on their birth certificates.

Since Shupe's petition was granted, judges in two OR counties have granted similar petitions to transgender people.

While new to the United States, non-binary gender markers are not new-other cultures and other countries have recognized non-binary genders for many years, including Canada, India, Bangladesh, Australia, New Zealand and Nepal. "I'm a mixture of both", Shupe said.
Gender non-binary residents will soon be able to select "X" for non-specified gender when they apply for their identification cards.
