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 552 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: Xenogender
Xenogender (coined by Baaphomett in 2014, from xeno alien + "gender") is a nonbinary gender identity "that cannot be contained by human understandings of gender; more concerned with crafting other methods of gender categorization and hierarchy such as those relating to animals, plants, or other creatures/things." Xenogender isn't defined in relation to "female" or "male" (the binary genders), but by other kinds of ideas that most people don't think of as having to do with gender. When people talk about nonbinary gender, they often find that there aren't any words for their experiences. This is called a lexical gap. In order to fill a lexical gap, this wiki takes up "xenogender" as an umbrella term for an entire category of nonbinary genders that are defined by characteristics with no relation whatsoever to "female" or "male."
