Australia Passport Gender X

Grouse! In the Lucky Country, the transgender is sure lucky!

If LadyGaga was an Aussie, her  passport would show an X don’t you think?

Hold your horses! Let us elaborate on this.

Intersex people or those who are biologically neither male nor female can choose X on Australian passport applications.

If you’re a transgender, you will have to provide records like doctor’s certification to back up your choice of male or female. Transgender people cannot pick “X.”

Just a tip, prepare yourself to explain the “X” under “gender” on your Australian passport when you pass through immigration at certain countries.

I guess they are soon to change their bathroom signs as well…

Ah, sexuality is a spectrum.
