Mayor De Blasio Signs Law Establishing ‘Third Gender’ For NYC Birth Certificates

Jillian Jorgensen

The new law, signed Tuesday by Mayor de Blasio and introduced by Council Speaker Corey Johnson, will allow adults born here to change the gender on their birth certificate without a medical professional’s approval — instead letting them “self-attest” their gender.

And it will provide the third option of X to people like Asia Kate Dillon, an actor on the popular show Billions who is non-binary — identifying as neither male nor female and using the pronoun “they.”
