Nonbinary is a descriptor used by individuals whose gender identity lies outside the binary gender categories of male and female. Often, but not always, these individuals will use the pronoun “they/them”. But because gender identity comes with a spectrum, they may also use the pronouns “they/him” or “they/her.” It’s also important to remember that gender identity and sexual orientation are different things; A non-binary person may be gay, lesbian, bisexual or pansexual. Similarly, they may or may not be transgender.
