Jack Bott and Zeloszelos Marchandt talk about Oregons ID History


Oregon became the first state to put a third gender option on its drivers license. The land mark decision was made possible by Jamie Shupe’s efforts as a transgender non binary person to take their case to the courts when the Oregon Department of Motor vehicles refused to change Shupe’s gender on their license back in 2016. Shupe won and Oregon state complied with courts decision. Today people have three gender options to choose from when applying for or renewing their Oregon driver license but transgender people are still being denied the service.
