Alternate non-binary flag

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

Non-binary people may also identify as transgender and/or transsexual. The label genderqueer has a lot of overlap with non-binary. Non-binary is often seen as the preferred term, as "queer" may be 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.

Non-binary people can use any pronoun they so please. Majority of Non-binary people use They/Them pronouns, but since pronouns do not always correspond to gender, they can use any pronouns. For example, a nonbinary person who is femenine may use she/her pronouns due to being comfortable with such. Some may use all/any pronouns, and not have a preference. Some may prefer they pronouns, but are okay with any. Some reclaim it/its pronouns, such as reclaiming the slurr Queer. Some even use Neopronouns, such as xe, zey, per, jie, and or Ne/nim/nis pronouns.
