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.
Currently, 8 users are working on 406 articles here.
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!
- Help to add information to pages which need it!
- Spread the word. If you know somebody who is nonbinary or questioning their gender, tell them about this wiki. If you don't know anybody like this, tell them anyway!
Featured article: Gender-variant articles around the world
From ancient history to the present, many cultures around the world that have established gender-variant identities worldwide, some of which are accepted as an essential part of their societies. These are the gender identities and roles that Western anthropologists have called third gender, because they are different than the Western gender binary idea of cisgender, heterosexual, masculine men and feminine women. Identities that have been called "third gender" are often transgender and nonbinary, and the "third gender" label pushes that interpretation. However, many of the identities that anthropologists call third gender are not nonbinary identities. This is part of why "third gender" is a problematic colonialist label. It can also be colonialist and problematic to call these identities by outside labels such as "transgender" and "nonbinary," in cases where the people in question haven't said that they would call themselves by those words.
