NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) -- The Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles will soon allow a non-binary gender designation on state drivers' licenses.

Starting Monday, three gender options will be available for state-issued license and identification cards male, female, and non-binary, denoted by the letter X.

Deputy Commissioner Tony Guerrera says the goal is to be be fair to everyone and to respect people's gender identity.

Connecticut will be one of 12 states that allow non-binary gender identification on drivers' licenses.

The policy takes effect beginning on Monday at AAA and non-department locations, and Tuesday at department-operated locations.
