(Watch) Austria is set to issue its first intersex birth certificate following a four-year legal battle. 42-year-old Alex Juergen became the first person in Austria’s history to be issued intersex identity documents in 2018. Following a historic ruling from the Austrian Constitutional Court, Juergen was issued a passport marked with a gender-neutral “X.” The court ruled that forcing intersex people to carry identity documents which force them into a binary gender violates their right to privacy under Article Eight of the European Convention on Human Rights. The certificate said 'other' then, but now the case has concluded and the document will say 'inter', for intersex, an important distinction for Juergen. The United States does not recognize intersex identities federally, 12 states allow individuals to apply for an “X” marker on their birth documents. Austria is the first country in the world to do this.
