Australian passports now have 1 more gender option: indeterminate, to remove discrimination against transgender people.

CANBERRA (AP) - Australian passports will now have three gender options: male, female and indeterminate. The change is designed to remove discrimination against transgender people. The government said on Thursday that transgender people and those of ambiguous sex will be able to list their gender with an 'X' if their choice is supported by a doctor's statement. Previously, gender was a choice of only male or female, and people were not allowed to change their gender on their passport without having had a sex-change operation. Government senator Louise Pratt, whose partner was born female and is now identified as a man, says the reform is a major improvement for travellers who face questioning and detention in airports because their appearances do not match their gender status.
