A non-binary gender (also known as being genderqueer) is any gender that is not male or female. Someone who is non-binary might identify as transgender. Some non-binary people experience gender dysphoria.
The idea that there are only two genders (male and female) is called the gender binary. By extension, a non-binary gender is a gender that is not part of the gender binary.
Pronouns and titlesEdit
Some non-binary people may use gender-neutral words to describe themselves. Many non-binary people prefer to be called the pronoun "they" instead of "she" or "he". Other pronouns like "xe" or "ey" may be used, these are known to be neopronouns.
