Luna M. Ferguson is a Canadian filmmaker, author, and LGBTQ activist.

In May 2017, Ferguson applied to change their birth certificate gender to nonbinary. After extended delay, in September 2017 they filed a human rights complaint with the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario. The government of Ontario changed its policies in 2018 and issued Ferguson with a birth certificate showing their gender as X.[1][2][3][4]

They wrote a memoir titled Me, Myself, They: Life Beyond the Binary, which was published May 2019.[5]
