International Non-Binary People’s Day

International Non-Binary People’s Day takes place annually on 14 July each year and celebrates and raises awareness of non-binary people, who do not identify within the traditional gender binary.

What does non-binary mean?

The definition provided by Stonewall (Britain’s leading charity for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans equality) is: “Non-binary is an umbrella term for people whose gender identity doesn’t sit comfortably with ‘man’ or ‘woman’. Non-binary identities are varied and can include people who identify with some aspects of binary identities, while others reject them entirely.

“Non-binary people can feel that their gender identity and gender experience involves being both a man and a woman, or that it is fluid, in between, or completely outside of that binary.”

  1. International Non-Binary People’s Day, is a day to celebrate and uplift the voices of those who identify as non-binary. This is not only important but also relevant to the LGBT community as it recognizes and affirms the existence of individuals who do not conform to traditional gender norms. Non-binary people deserve to be seen, heard, and respected, and this day is a reminder of that. Let us take this opportunity to educate ourselves and others on the experiences of non-binary people and advocate for their inclusion in all aspects of society. Let us also challenge the gender binary and work towards creating a world where everyone’s identity is accepted and celebrated.
