Gender identity and gender presentation are components of "sex"-- along with other components like sex chromosomes, genitals, internal reproductive organs, hormones,  etc.--
It is gender identity that determines what a person's legal sex is. 

Goal: allow non-binary adults to self identify


The Intersex & Genderqueer Recognition Project (IGRP) is the first, and leading, organization in the United States to address the rights of people to identify as non-binary on government issued documents.

Legal documents base identity on sex assigned at birth, or later transition, without the possibility that an individual may identify as neither male nor female, or both male and female. In the

human experience there exist a spectrum of potential genders and sexes!

IGRP's goal is to allow non-binary adults to self-identify as something other than male
or female on their driver’s license, passport, and other government issued identification.
