Non-binary gender (see also genderqueer) describes any gender identity which does not fit within the binary of male and female. Those with non-binary genders can feel that they:

  • Have an androgynous (both masculine and feminine) gender identity, such as androgyne.
  • Have a neutral or non-existant gender identity, such as agender or neutrois.
  • Have multiple gender identities, such as bigender or pangender.
  • Have a gender identity which varies over time, known as genderfluid.
  • Have a culturally specific gender identity which exists only within the culture they or their ancestors belong to.
  • Otherwise feel that their gender is neither fully male nor fully female.

Non-binary people may also identify as transgender and/or transsexual. The label genderqueer has a lot of overlap with non-binary, but non-binary is often seen as more politically correct, since queer is sometimes used as a transphobic insult.

Non-binary people may wish to transition so that their gender expression more closely reflects their internal identity. Many non-binary people wish to appear androgynous and adopt unisex names, gender-neutral titles such as Mx. and/or gender-neutral pronouns, but others prefer to express themselves in ways which are traditionally seen as masculine or feminine, or to mix aspects of the two.

Non-binary people can have any sexual orientation, although if attracted primarily to a single gender they may prefer to use gender-terminology to express this, such as androsexual or gynosexual
