Adjective. A person who’s gender identity does not conform to the gender binary, which is the erroneous idea that only two distinct and opposite genders exist, male and female. In reality, many genders exist (see also Gender Expansive, Genderqueer, Gender Nonconforming). Some nonbinary people identify with more than one gender, while others don’t identify with any. There are many ways to be nonbinary, and everyone’s experience with gender is different.
