Welcome to the Nonbinary wiki

The wiki dedicated to nonbinary gender identities
About

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.

Since the day of its creation, 204 users have been working on 305 articles here.

Nonbinary?

Nonbinary is a term that refers to people whose gender is neither male nor female. They can identify with not having gender at all, with both binary genders, with a third identity, or an identity which can change over time. Nonbinary people fall under the transgender umbrella term, and nonbinary is an umbrella term itself, although some people use it to describe their specific gender identity too.

Featured article: Pronouns

In linguistics and grammar, a pronoun is a word that substitutes for a noun or noun phrase. It is a particular case of a pro-form. In the context of transgender issues, pronouns is a shorthand term that specifically refers to third person personal pronouns. The most commonly used third person personal pronouns among nonbinary people are singular they, he/him and she/her.

In a 2016 survey of over 3,000 nonbinary people, the top five pronouns participants were happy for people to use for them were:

  • Singular they/them: 77.5%
  • She/her: 25.0%
  • He/him: 23.4%
  • Mix it up: 12.2%
  • None/avoid pronouns: 11.0%

The most popular neopronoun was xe/xem/xyr/xyrs/xemself at 9.7%.
