Argentina made history by legally recognising non-binary people, but now they’re left ‘in limbo’

Argentina made history in July as the first country in Latin America to legally recognise non-binary people – but people issued with documents showing their gender as ‘X’ say they have been left in a legal limbo. Non-binary people in Argentina trying to access essential public services, like their COVID vaccinations, health insurance, tax records and digital citizen profile, have found that the current systems don’t recognise their new national ID cards (DNIs). National agencies in Argentina had until 18 November to update their systems to make them accessible to those with the new third gender category, but failed to meet this deadline, and as a result the computer software still doesn’t recognise ‘X’ gender markers.
