Facebook's new "gender options" launch in the UK
Following a successful trial in the U.S., Facebook users in the UK can now choose from one of 70 gender options, including 'asexual', 'two-spirit', 'intersex' and 'cisgender.'
Before the changes, only male and female options were available on the gender tab in profiles.
Facebook has also updated its settings so users can choose a neutral pronoun, meaning they are referred to as 'they, their or them'.This screen shot released by Facebook shows the new gender option screen. Facebook came up with its range of terms after consulting with leading gay and transgender activists, and the company plans to continue working with them
Facebook rolled out the changes to its more than 159 million monthly users in the U.S. in February.
The changes are aimed at giving people more choices in how they describe themselves, such as androgynous, bi-gender, intersex, gender fluid or transsexual.
'There's going to be a lot of people for whom this is going to mean nothing, but for the few it does impact, it means the world,' said Facebook software engineer Brielle Harrison.
