A few short years ago, not a single government-issued ID allowed for a gender-neutral X designation. Now in 2020 almost half the states offer an X designation and many have applicants to self-report their appropriate gender marker. 2020 marks the introduction of our first federal bill to create a third gender marker option, brings the deadline for travelers to obtain a Real ID card to fly domestically, and awaits review from higher courts on a lawsuit fighting to obtaining an ‘X’on a federal passport. The issue of proper identification for transgender, non-binary, and intersex people has gotten increased visibility with every year. Our panel of advocates will share the latest news and trends of gender change laws in courts and legislatures across the country and lead a discussion on how access to accurate IDs impacts voting rights, safety and access to facilities, airport security, and more.
Speakers: Charlie Arrowood (Arrowood Law); Arli Christian (ACLU); AC Dumlao (Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund); Alan York (Reed Smith LLP)
