About

Nonbinary wiki was created on the 1st of February 2017, after the original Nonbinary.org Wiki went down. Luckily, the Wayback Machine had a copy of it. Our goal is to build a new wiki with the best of the old as well as new and improved content.

Since the day of its creation, 20 users have been working on 66 articles here.

Nonbinary?

Nonbinary is a term that refers to people whose gender is neither male nor female. Their gender can be neither, both, a third one or it can also change over time. Nonbinary people fall under the transgender umbrella term, and nonbinary is an umbrella term itself, although some people use it to describe their specific gender identity too.

Androgyne symbol. In 1996, self-identified androgyne Raphael Carter proposed adopting this ambiguous geometric shape, the Necker Cube, as a symbol for androgynes, "because it is either concave or convex depending on how you look at it."

Androgyne, or androgynous gender, is an identity under the nonbinary and transgender umbrellas. Androgyne individuals have a gender identity and/or gender expression that can be a blend of both or neither of the binary genders. They may describe this in terms of being between female and male, between man and woman, between masculine and feminine or simply 'in between.' They can also identify as neither feminine or masculine, or neither female and male. Some people who use this label identify with androgyny as a gender presentation or have or wish to obtain an androgynous, 'in between', or neutral body, others see this as solely a matter of gender identity and may express their androgynous gender through their personality or activities such as crossdressing.
