These Non-Binary Celebs Are Breaking the Gender Mould

Team Missy

When it comes to gender and sexuality there is a lot more to the equation than male or female, heterosexual or homosexual.

Not everyone fits into one “box” either. Gender is a complex and personal thing for a lot of people, and despite how they might present themselves to the world, they may not feel comfortable being referred to as a male or a female. That’s were terms like “non-binary” come in.

What Does Non-Binary Mean?

Non-binary, or genderqueer, is an umbrella term to describe those whose identities fall outside the binary ideas of male and female. Non-binary identities fall under the transgender umbrella, since non-binary people typically identify with a gender that is different from their assigned sex, though some non-binary individuals do not consider themselves transgender.

Non-binary people may identify as having two or more genders (being bigender or trigender); having no gender (agender, nongendered, genderless, genderfree); moving between genders or having a fluctuating gender identity (genderfluid).

We perviously put together a full guide on the Gender Identity Terms you need to know to correctly describe gender and sexuality.

It’s also important to say that gender identity is separate from sexual or romantic orientation, and non-binary people have a variety of sexual orientations, just as cisgender people do.
