An option to have birth certificates reissued with a gender designation neither male nor female could soon be a reality for Washington natives.
But first the state Department of Health, which has proposed the change, wants to know what the public thinks.
The department is holding a public hearing Tuesday on the proposed addition of a third option for sex designation on existing birth certificates.
The hearing will be held 1-5 p.m. Tuesday at Point Plaza East, 310 Israel Road SE, Tumwater.
Never miss a local story.
If adopted, the change would include requirements for individuals to request the change on their birth certificate. The option would apply to people who already have a Washington birth certificate.
