AUGUSTA, Maine — Maine might start offering nonbinary birth certificates. The Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention is considering changing rules so nonbinary can be used as a gender marker on birth certificates, the Portland Press Herald reported. Nonbinary people are people who have a gender identity that is not strictly male or female. If the change is approved, parents would be allowed to choose nonbinary at birth or allow for the issue of a new birth certificate later in life, the Press Herald reported. The state began offering nonbinary driver’s licenses and identification cards in 2018.
