Brit Recognized as World's First 'Genderless' Person

A Brit named Norrie May-Welby, who was dissatisfied after a sex change operation to become a woman, decided to become the world’s first "genderless" person, the Telegraph reported.

May-Welby, 48, was born a man and had a sex change operation in 1990, at age 28, to become a woman, the paper reported.

But May-Welby eventually became unhappy as a woman, opting to reject both genders. May-Welby is now officially recognized as a person of no specific gender, the Telegraph reported.

May-Welby, who moved to Australia at age 7, had her birth certificate altered to reflect the no-gender classification given to her by doctors.

"The concepts of man or woman don’t fit me. The simplest solution is not to have any sex identification," May-Welby was quoted by the Telegraph.

"Many people like the idea of being genderless," said a spokesman for the U.K.’s Gender Trust.
