    Transneutral is a term used to describe a transgender individual who identifies fully or partially as a neutral, abinary, or other specific* non-binary gender. It can be considered umbrella term for individuals who transition to a neutral identity. Transneutral individuals can identify as other, non-neutral genders as well - for example, someone who identifies as a neuwoman could simultaneously identify as transneutral, though usually the individuals' neutral identities are more significant than the individuals' non-neutral identities, or the individual usually wants their neutral identity considered more significant than their non-neutral.

    Transneutral individuals are sometimes called MtN/FtN or M2N/F2N (male/female to neutral) depending on the individuals assigned gender at birth (AGaB - which can include AFAB, otherwise known as assigned female at birth, or AMAB, otherwise known as assigned male at birth)

    Umbrella Terms[edit | edit source]

    Within the LGBTQIA+ community, "umbrella terms" are a system of terms that correlate with, or centre more on specific terms, for gender or sexual identity / orientation. Using as an example:

    BTX / BTNB
    This is the Binary to Non-Binary Flay (BTNB), which is often confused with the transneutral flag. While they're similar in that they both centre with Non-Binary identities, they're not the same.


    NB: Common Terms NB/ NBCT: More Specified Terms
    Genderqueer, Genderfluid, Genderneutral -- > Genderless, Genderflux,
    Demigender, Demiboy, Demigirl --> Demiboyflux, Demigirlflux, Demigenderflux, Demiflux
    Polygender --> Bigender, Trigender, Quadgender
    Queer -- > Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Asexual
    Transgender -- > Transmasculine, Transfeminine, Transneutral

    Transneutral is not synonymous with being non-binary, since several non-binary genders are neutral-aligned or neutral in nature, and not all non-binary individuals identify as transgender. However, it is often still shown under the umbrella term of Non-Binary, due to the spectrum of genders that an umbrella term can show simultaneously often being overlooked or generalised.

    Transitioning[edit | edit source]

    Transneutral is sometimes used, not specifically as a gender identity, instead as a way to describe anyone who undergoes a medical transition process that is not fully transmasculine or fully transfeminine - either through surgery, hormone replacement therapy, or other similar ways of internally or externally transitioning. Under this definition, individuals who undergo transition(s) - whether internally or externally, socially or legally - to seem more neutral would be considered transneutral, regardless of their actual gender identity. The feminine equivalent to transneutral is transfeminine. The masculine equivalent is transmasculine.

    History[edit | edit source]

    In the 2022 Gender Census, a 0.3% of participants in the survey identified as transneutral.[1]
