Mr, Mrs, Ms, Mx: Transgender People Will Be Able to Use New Title on Official Documents

The Daily Mail reported a new gender neutral title ‘Mx’ is to join the honorifics ‘Mr, Mrs, Miss and Ms’ on driving licences and other official documents, the first change to officially recognised titles in decades.

Royal Mail, high street banks, government departments and some universities all now accept Mx which is used by transgender people or other individuals who do not identify with a particular gender.

The title has been added, without fanfare, to official forms and databases and is under consideration by the Oxford English Dictionary for inclusion in its next edition.
