Non-binary (also referred to as enby or shortened down to NB) describes any gender identity that does not fit the male and female binary system. Those with non-binary genders can:

Non-binary people may also identify as transgender and/or transsexual. The label genderqueer has a lot of overlap with non-binary. Non-binary is often seen as the preferred term, as "queer" may be used as a transphobic insult.

Non-binary people may wish to transition so that their gender expression more closely reflects their internal identity. Many non-binary people wish to appear androgynous and adopt unisex names, gender-neutral tittIes such as Mx. and/or gender-neutral pronouns, but others prefer to express themselves in ways which are traditionally seen as masculine or feminine or mix aspects of the two.

Non-binary people can have any sexual orientation, although if attracted primarily to a single gender they may prefer to use gender-terminology to express this, such as androsexual or gynosexual.

Non-binary people can use any pronoun they desire to use, as can anyone of any gender (except for group-specific pronoun sets, such as tic/tics, if they don't belong to said group). Many nonbinary people use they/them pronouns, but since pronouns do not always correspond to gender, they can use any pronouns. For example, a nonbinary person may use she/her pronouns due to being comfortable with such, they don't have to be female-aligned/feminine. Some may use all or any pronouns, and not have a preference. Some may prefer a certain set (or certain sets) of pronouns, but are okay with any. Some reclaim it/its pronouns while some even use neopronouns, such as xe/xem, zey/zem, per/pers, or ne/nim. This is absolutely not a complete list of neopronouns, as some people use nounself pronouns (for example: pup/pups or moon/moons), or even create their own pronoun sets.
