Juxera is defined as a gender similar to female, but separate and entirely on its own. It is one gender, as opposed to demigirl, which is often used to describe a combination of genders (for example, agender and female, or partially female and partially another gender). Juxera individuals don't partially identify with other genders, as juxera is a gender in and of itself.[1]

Because juxera is a whole gender, juxera individuals may also identify as third gender. Juxera is meant to be used as an adjective (ex. "I am Juxera", not "I am a Juxera").

In the 2020 Gender Census, 13 respondents (0.05%) were juxera.[2]

Origin[edit | edit source]

The term and original flag was coined by Tumblr user wulfgendur,[3] also known as Ren (he/him, xe/xem), who also coined the term proxvir, a "near-male" counterpart gender to juxera.[3]

The term "juxera" was created from the Latin adverb for "near", juxta, and the feminine Latin noun era.[3][1]
