answer text <p>United Kingdom legislation only recognises two legal sexes or genders; male and female. There is no legal recognition of a third gender. Her Majesty’s Passport Office can therefore only issue passports indicating ‘male’ or ‘female’.</p><p>The Government is aware of an increasing number of people who identify as neither exclusively male nor female. We have committed to carrying out a call for evidence on the experiences of people who have a non-binary gender identity. The evidence gathered from this exercise will inform the Government’s next steps in this area.</p> more like this
