Femmegender, or femgender, is a nonbinary gender identity that is feminine in nature. It comes from the queer term "femme," which means a person who subverts and/or queers femininity. The term is popular in lesbian and sapphic communities. Femmegender can denote a person whose gender identity is tied to their femmeness. For a person who does not identify as femme, but still feels like their femininity is a part of their gender, the spelling femgender is more commonly used.
