Welcome to the Non-binary wiki

The wiki dedicated to the promotion of non-binary gender identities
About

Non-binary wiki was created on the 1st of February 2017, after the original Nonbinary.org Wiki went down. Luckily, the Wayback Machine has 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, 4,200 users have been working on 746 articles here.

Non-binary?

Non-binary 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. Non-binary people fall under the transgender umbrella term, and non-binary is an umbrella term itself, although some people use it to describe their specific gender identity too.

Click on the blue words above or explore the wiki to learn more about non-binary identities!

Get involved!

This site is a wiki, meaning that anybody (including you) can make a contribution to it. You don't even need to create an account, although it's strongly recommended. These are some things you can do to contribute:

  • Edit an existing article. Search any page and improve its content! You can also expand a stub.
  • Go to the list of wanted pages and create one of them! (You can use the old Nonbinary.org wiki as a starting point)
  • Spread the word. If you know somebody who is non-binary or questioning their gender, tell them about this wiki. If you don't know anybody like this, tell them anyway!
Featured article

People use clothes as a way of talk without words, to tell others what kind of person they are. However, because gender identity is different than gender expression, a person's gender identity may or may not correlate with how they wear their hair or clothes. For example, if someone likes to wear clothes from the women's wear department, or feminine accessories, that doesn't necessarily mean that they identify as a woman. There is no set style or guidelines for nonbinary presentation due to the diversity of identities encompassed within these terms. Clothing links and descriptions may be identity-specific as well as subject to variation by the individual. For example, a person identifying as an androgyne may not necessarily wish to present as androgynous. Some nonbinary people like clothes that don't give any female or male markers (gender-neutral fashion). Other nonbinary people like clothes that mix female and male markers (mixed-gender fashion). Yet other nonbinary people wear clothes that are very similar to either conventional women's wear or conventional men's wear.
