DENVER, Co. — A U.S. District Court Judge, on Wednesday, ruled that the U.S. State Department exceeded its authority under the Passport Act of 1926 when it denied a passport to Lambda Legal client Dana Zzyym, a U.S. Navy veteran who is intersex and non-binary, and does not identify as male or female. The State Department denied Dana's passport application because Dana could not accurately choose either male or female on the passport application form, and the form does not provide any other gender marker designation.
