Briton is recognised as world's first officially genderless person

A British expat who claims to have no gender is thought to have become the first person to be officially recognised as neither male or female.

May-Welby said: 'The concepts of man or woman don?t fit me. The simplest solution is not to have any sex identification' Norrie May-Welby, 48, was born a man but had a sex change operation in 1990, at the age of 28.

After becoming unhappy as a woman, May-Welby decided to become a “neuter”. The 48-year-old is now officially recognised as a person of no specific gender.

May-Welby emigrated to Australia at the age of seven after being born in Paisley, Renfrewshire.

Officials there altered the Briton’s birth certificate to include the new no-gender classification after doctors were apparently unable to determine the sex of the expat’s body.

May-Welby said: “The concepts of man or woman don’t fit me. The simplest solution is not to have any sex identification.”

The UK’s Gender Trust welcomed the case. A spokesman said: “Many people like the idea of being genderless.”

What? They can't do DNA tests Down Under? :confused:

He looks pretty genderless in the photo. I see both male and female characteristics in his face.


He's still a man, though.

I guess when you have a face like that you will go to great lengths to get laid. I doubt if any of them worked.

I see a homosexual-looking man. Disgusting and immoral.

I would expect Policon to look like that, perhaps smaller.

DNA test the bastard and put what ever comes up as the gender on the certificate.
