The Democratic National Committee held a gathering in Chicago this weekend where members adopted language inclusive of Nonbinary People.  That’s right, the DNC makes it official that those who neither identify as male or female are to have a voice.

The new rule is now a part of the Democratic National Committee’ new charter. From now on all party committees will be required to equally divide members between genders. Previously, every committee member had to identify as male or female. Thanks to the new Nonbinary rule, individuals will not be counted solely under men or women.

Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez who is right now getting high points among progressives, told CNN in a statement…”At the root of our diverse party is a commitment to inclusion and opportunity. By adopting this amendment, the Democratic National Committee is ensuring every Democrat feels welcome and embraced for who they are. This action reaffirms our solidarity with the LGBTQ community and challenges governments, employers, and organizations across the country to do the same.” said Perez.

Jason Rae, the Democratic National Committee Secretary who helped author the Nonbinary rule change said…”The new rules are meant to make the party as inclusive as possible.” said Rae.
