HRC Celebrates Non-Binary People's Day

Non-binary is a term used to describe gender identities that do not fit within the traditional categories of male or female. This identity challenges the binary concept of gender that society typically adheres to, acknowledging the diversity and fluidity of gender experiences. For those who identify as non-binary - a term used to describe genders besides just male or female - but not as transgender. It is also for those who identify as both transgender and non-binary simultaneously (e.g. “trans non-binary”).

Non-binary people may use various terms to describe their gender identity, such as genderqueer, genderfluid, agender, or bigender, among others. Embracing non-binary identities is part of a broader movement towards inclusivity.

No matter who you are, we affirm you, your gender is valid - and this day is for you.

There are many ways to show your support, so no matter who you are, you can take steps towards strengthening your allyship. Keep an open mind that there are many different experiences to draw from when building one’s understanding of non-binary and gender-expansive communities.
