X-gender (Xジェンダー x-jendā, or エックスジェンダー ekkusu-jendā), is a Japanese transgender identity that is used to describe somebody that identifies as neither male or female.[1] The term X-gender is used exclusively in Japan for individuals that may identify as genderqueer and nonbinary. X-gender relates primarily to the terms used in the Japanese transgender community, FTX and MTX, which mean a divergent or unknown destination from the transitional paths FTM and MTF. It's also related to the use in some countries (including Australia and the UK) of “x gender” on paperwork for a gender other than man or woman.
