Nova Scotia students will soon be able to mark an ‘X’ to confirm their gender at school. Students will be able to choose either ‘F’ for female, ‘M’ for male or ‘X’ for non-binary, transgender, gender fluid or gender diverse. Students in junior high school & high school can fill out the form themselves, however students in pre-primary to Grade 6 need their parents to approve.
