Just Check the Box

Maryland now has a modernized process for changing or selecting the correct gender marker!

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.

Note: this event will probably draw media/photographers, so if you don’t wish to be photographed, you may not want to attend this event.

 

This event is hosted by Trans Healthcare Maryland and the Baltimore Transgender Alliance
