Legal recognition of non-binary gender: Not legally recognized from Oct 3, 2023 to now.
Non-binary people are recognized in its definitions by law, but there is no third gender marker option available for ID documents. However in 2023, the governing council of the University of the Republic (Udelar) in Uruguay has approved the implementation of a non-binary option on their degree titles. The non-binary option allows individuals who do not identify strictly as male or female to be represented accurately on their academic credentials. This decision is significant as it reflects a broader societal shift towards recognizing and respecting non-binary gender identities.
