Our Definition

an umbrella term which refers to people whose gender identity falls outside of the traditional categories of “man” or “woman”. Often used synonymously with genderqueer. Can include genderfluid, agender, and multi-gender individuals. Frequently shortened to NB or Enby. 

Real Life Examples

Lux sometimes feels like a man, other times like a woman, and other times somewhere in between. 

Taylor has always felt “other” in a fundamental sense, no matter how they presented. Discovering their non-binary identity helped them understand themself and feel valid.

Ash has always preferred an androgynous presentation and does not identify with binary gender.
