Gender variant is an umbrella term for gender identities and expressions that are different than the norm. That is, they are to some degree transgender, and don't fit into the gender binary system. Gender variant has variously been used as another word for genderqueer, nonbinary, transgender, third gender, and gender nonconforming.


"Gender variant" was among the 56 genders made available on Facebook in 2014.[1]
