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, 247 users have been working on 315 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: Cisgender

Cisgender (from Latin cis- "on the same side" + gender) means non-transgender. That is, a person who isn't transgender, in that their gender identity matches the gender they were assigned at birth, and they don't have gender dysphoria. Being cisgender is an aspect of a person's gender identity. Cisgender women are women who were assigned female at birth (or were born with certain intersex conditions), and who have a female gender identity. Cisgender men are men who were assigned male at birth (or were born with certain intersex conditions), and who have a male gender identity. A person need not have a binary gender identity in order to be cisgender. People who were born intersex and who have a nonbinary gender identity can think of themselves as transgender, or as cisgender. Some cisgender intersex people call their gender identity "intersex," or "intergender." Some people of any gender assigned at birth think of their gender identity as cisgender at the same time as being genderqueergender nonconforming, or other identities that don't fit within the gender binary. Most cisgender people don't seek a gender transition, but some do. For example, some drag artists who think of themselves as cisgender go on hormone therapy.
