Just Check The Box
October 1, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm
Join us on Tuesday October 1st as we update our Maryland IDs and driver’s licenses.
SB196 and HB421 have become law and Maryland now has a modernized process for changing or selecting the correct gender marker. As of October 1, 2019 there will be 3 choices for gender marker in the state of Maryland. X, F, and M. The former policy required 3 letters, and now nonbinary, transgender, Two-Spirit, intersex, gender non-conforming, and gender expansive persons can “Just Check The Box” like cisgender folks with NO letters needed. We can now “self-attest” our gender.
A huge thank you to every activist and organization that has worked on updating this policy for years.
