Definition and Usage

Demiguy, also known as demimale, demiboy, or demiman, is a gender identity that falls partially, but not entirely, within the category of male. A person identifying as a demiguy may feel both "male" and "nonbinary" or simply feel "loosely male." While demiguy is a distinct label, it can also serve as an umbrella term encompassing gender identities that are partially male and partially nonbinary. This gender identity can be either static or fluid, meaning it may remain consistent or change over time.

History

While the term demiguy has been used for some time, its exact origin remains uncertain. However, the distinctive flags associated with demiguy identities have been in existence since 2014.

On February 18, 2014, a demiguy flag was created by transrants.[1] Notably, on the same day, an alternative demiboy flag was also introduced by transrants.[2] Later, on January 26, 2015, Willow submitted a demiboy flag to the Tumblr account "pride-flags-for-us".[3] These flags have since played an essential role in visually representing the demiguy identity and its variations.

Related Terms

There are many other genders similar but more specific than demiguy, including bxy, nonbinary boy, genderfaun, juparian, cassboy, among many others. A demiguy may also use other labels to define their "other side", oftentimes aporagenders. The feminine equivalent is demigirl, and it is part of the demigender group.

Flags

The demiguy flag typically features blue and grey tones, each representing different aspects of the gender identity:

  • The blue in the flag symbolizes the connection to the masculine or male gender.
  • The grey tones represent the other gender feelings or the nonbinary aspect of the identity.

It's worth noting that there is a third flag associated with demiguy, although it is not commonly circulated within the community due to its similarities with the achillean flag, which represents a different subset of the LGBTQ+ community.
