The Biden administration is issuing its first passport with an "X" gender for those who won't identify as male or female, AP reported.

The US special diplomatic envoy for LGBTQ rights, Jessica Stern, called the moves historic and celebratory.

“When a person obtains identity documents that reflect their true identity, they live with greater dignity and respect,” Stern said.

The State Department did not indicate for whom the passport was issued.
