Definitions and Usage[edit | edit source]
Genderqueer is a specific label and umbrella term describing an unconventional relationship with ones gender, whether that be using seemingly contradictory labels, not identifying with the binary, or otherwise not exactly fitting inside society's expectations of gender. There is much overlap between genderqueer & nonbinary, and the terms are often used interchangeably; although, genderqueer has a larger scope, and can encompass presentation, blurring lines between labels, or one's orientation affecting one's gender identity.
Related Terms[edit | edit source]
Genderqueer people may also identify as gender non-conforming or transgender, as well as subcategories of nonbinary, like agender, genderfluid, and aporagender. Genderqueer people can also identify as xenic-in-nature but this is less common.
Flags[edit | edit source]
According the creator, the lavender stripe represents the mix of the binary genders, and the green, as an inverse of that lavender, represents being neither male or female. The white is for being completely outside of the typical spectrum.
