Sometimes referred to as ‘genderqueer’, non-binary is an umbrella term for people whose gender identity exists outside of the gender binary of male (man/boy) and female (woman/girl) genders. Some non-binary people use they/them pronouns whereas others may not. Some may use she/they or he/they. It’s important to note that pronouns are not always indicative of gender identity and someone who uses she/her or he/him pronouns may still identify as non-binary. 

Non-binary identities are varied and can include people who feel absolutely no affiliation with any gender or gender as a concept. Some may feel that because their gender not restricted to a binary, it is infinite and somewhat indefinable. A non-binary person might also identify with some aspects of the binary male and female genders; that doesn’t make them any less non-binary!
