A senior business executive with 20-plus years of experience, Kathy Levinson now focuses her efforts on providing coaching services to entrepreneurs and executives in both the for profit and nonprofit sectors. In addition to her professional pursuits, Kathy Levinson is a longtime supporter of GLBTQ Legal Advocates and Defenders (GLAD).

Along with other equality-centric organizations, GLAD recently applauded the efforts of the Maine Bureau of Motor Vehicles to make accommodations for nonbinary gender designations on driver’s licenses and other state-issued forms of identification. The move comes after a Maine resident filed a grievance with the state’s Human Rights Commission concerning the lack of other gender options.
Those wishing to update their existing Maine licenses can fill out a Gender Designation Form to receive a sticker reading, “Gender has been changed to X - Non-binary.” Beginning in mid-2019, the “X” option will be available alongside “M” and “F” as a gender designation on all newly issued licenses and state identification cards.
