What is Nonbinary

The Role of Child Life Specialists in Community Settings
An adjective that describes a person who does not identify exclusively as a man or a woman. Non-binary people may identify as being both a man and a woman, somewhere in between, or as falling completely outside these categories. While many also identify as transgender, not all non-binary people do. Non-binary can also be used as an umbrella term encompassing identities such as agender, bigender, genderqueer or gender-fluid, gender nonconforming, or gender-expansive.
