Protecting Intersex, Genderqueer, and other non-binary persons' right to self identify

Sex – physical characteristics distinguishing people's bodies as male, female, or intersex

Gender – internal sense or external presentation as male, female, both, or neither

        Understanding Gender

Goal: allow non-binary adults to self identify


The Intersex & Genderqueer Recognition Project (IGRP) is the only legal organization in the United States addressing the right of non-binary adults to gender-self-identify on legal 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.

How: Targeted legislative initiatives and
with existing organizations!
