adj – A term used to describe someone who identifies their gender outside the binary of man and woman—either because they identify as both masculine and feminine, because they identify as neither masculine nor feminine, or because they identify in a way that does not conform with the normative views of sex and gender in their culture and historical period. Related terms are genderqueer or gender non-conforming.


adj – A term used to describe someone whose current gender identity does not align with the sex they were assigned at birth. In other words, someone who is not agender or cisgender. Related terms include transmasculine (someone who was assigned female at birth but identifies as a man or a masculine nonbinary person) and transfeminine (someone who was assigned male at birth but identifies as a woman or a feminine nonbinary person). Some nonbinary people identify as transgender; others do not.
