You can now get a gender neutral driver’s license in D.C.

( CNN) Nic Sakurai was among the first parties outside the Benning Road Department of Motor Vehicle office in Washington on Tuesday morning at 7:15.

Sakurai had created a Facebook event and invited others to join the historic date: They would become the first parties in the United States to choose X as their gender marker instead of male or female on driver’s licenses and identification cards.

The X represents gender neutral, the preferred designation for beings like Sakurai who don’t recognize as male or female.
