The State Department has issued the first US passport with an "X" gender marker, as it seeks to implement gender-inclusive policies, the department announced Wednesday.

In June, the department said it would update its procedures to allow applicants to self-select their sex marker for passports and that it "will no longer require medical certification" if an applicant's self-selected sex marker doesn't match the sex listed on other official identity documents.
