Unlabeled gender is a broad umbrella term that can be used as a gender identity label in and of itself. Someone who uses this term to describe themself may do so for various reasons, such as:
  • Being unsure of their specific gender label;
  • Being agender;
  • Being unaware of any label that matches their gender identity;
  • Their primary identification being as human;[1]
  • Disliking labels.

Moreover, someone who identifies as unlabeled may use additional terms to specify their experience. Examples of these supplementary labels can be Galactian system labels, transfeminine, transmasculine, non-binary, among many others.

Someone whose gender is unlabeled does not necessarily have to be non-binary, though they can be.
