According to Reuters, People who were born in New York City, but not identify as male or female can now select a third gender option of "X" on their birth certificates. Mayor Bill de Blasio has signed the provision into a law making New York City the fifth place to have the gender "X" option. Other states who have the option to select the third gender are California, Oregon, Washington state and New Jersey. Advocates of Transgender rights have been pressing governments to allow identity documents to be more easily changed to match gender identity.
