Non-Binary

So this is another term/identity that we are hearing of recently.

So a non binary person is someone who does not identify with any gender?
Is this more about the person not feeling comfortable with 'expected' gender norms?

not really about a persons sexuality?

Is 'Gender Fluid' and 'Non Binary' the same thing? Is being Trans and Non Binary the same?

.


Non-binary or genderqueer is an umbrella term for gender identities that are neither male nor female‍—‌identities that are outside the gender binary

Emmys 2021: Carl Clemons-...sider.com)

Carl Clemons-Hopkins made history at the Emmys by wearing an outfit with the colors of the non-binary flag

  • Carl Clemons-Hopkins wore an outfit with the colors of the non-binary flag at the Emmys.
  • The outfit celebrates "beauty beyond the heteronormative standard," according to the star's stylist.
  • The "Hacks" star became the first non-binary person to be nominated for best supporting actor.

Carl Clemons-Hopkins became the first non-binary person to be nominated for best supporting actor at the 73rd Emmy Awards on Sunday.

To celebrate, the "Hacks" actor walked the red carpet in a custom Christian Siriano outfit inspired by the non-binary flag, according to the designer. The actor's white button-down shirt, black trousers, purple belt, and purple and yellow train featured the colors of the flag.

The concept behind the look was Clemons-Hopkins' idea, Siriano said in a statement sent to Insider.

"Carl and their stylist Jyotisha sent me a few inspiration ideas so I went with something that felt powerful but elegant. Carl wanted to represent the non-binary colors which is why I felt the belt was just the right amount of representation," Siriano said.

The outfit was created as "an homage to the non-binary flag and celebrating our identities and beauty beyond the heteronormative standard," Clemons-Hopkins' stylist, Jyotisha Bridges, wrote in an Instagram post on Sunday.

The star reflected on how they came to identify as non-binary in an essay penned for The Hollywood Reporter in July, writing that they began to identify as queer in college before exploring gender norms during lockdown.

"In the past five or six years, I've been doing a lot of studies on the origins of masculinity, where all these rules and norms came from. At the same time, there's been so much violence and misunderstanding with trans folk and other queer people," Clemons-Hopkins wrote.

"I was figuring out where I fit in all of that. And then quarantine hit — there was so much time to explore my gender identity, or lack of gender identity," they added.

The actor went on to describe how this has altered their experience playing Marcus in "Hacks," a character they described as "a man who identifies as a man."

"I would go into work situations and think, 'You have to make sure you're being a man.' Now, I can just worry about being the character. It's incredibly freeing to focus on a character knowing that I myself am more resolved," they wrote.

Representatives for Siriano did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

Eminem’s child Stevie, ...yahoo.com)

Eminem's child Stevie, 19, comes out as genderfluid in moving TikTok video: 'Forever growing and changing'

August 13, 2021·

Eminem has another reason to be proud of his child Stevie.

The 19-year-old came out as genderfluid in a TikTok video chronicling the evolution of their gender identity through a series of photos.

At the beginning of the video, a person is heard fighting back tears as text appears: "Watch me become more comfortable with myself."

Then old photos start to appear, along with their birth name and "she/her." As the photos move forward in time, we start to see their gender evolution as the pronouns change to "they/she" and the name becomes "Stevie."

The text later changes to "they/them" before the video concludes with the text "all pronouns" and ends with a joyful photo of Stevie living their best life.

“Forever growing and changing,” the video was captioned, with the hashtags #genderfluid and #bi.

Eminem's Child Comes Out as Genderfluid in Moving TikTok Video

While Stevie previously announced their name change in June with an Instagram post that was captioned: "Call me Stevie (they/she/he)," this is officially the first time they used the term genderfluid.

The video was welcomed with supportive comments from followers.

When a commenter asked why they chose the name Stevie, they replied, "I spent a long time trying to pick a name I felt comfortable with and the first name I felt comfortable with is Stevie!!"

Another asked if they were planning on changing their name on their passport, to which Stevie replied: "Not yet! Working on it tho!"

"Stevie, you are so pretty!" one commenter said. "I am very happy that you are feeling comfortable with yourself even if I don’t know you personally."

Another added, "It takes so much courage to do that. Ur an amazing person."

“We support you and we are so proud of you! You are wonderful Stevie!!” wrote another.

Stevie is the child of Eminem’s ex-wife Kim Scott, whom he was married to between 1999 and 2001. Scott was the inspiration for the character played by Brittany Murphy in the 2002 film 8 Mile.

The rapper legally adopted Stevie in 2005 after reconciling with Scott. While they remarried in 2006, they ended up divorcing a few months later.

Bleeding for Freedom
 – My First Period as a Non-binary Menstruator

HomeNews › Bleeding for Freedom
 – My First Period as a Non-binary Menstruator

By: Cass Bliss Clemmer

I never thought that the image of a stained pair of ordinary underwear lying unceremoniously on my teenage room floor would have remained burned in my memory for almost a decade. In the field of psychology, that kind of mental image is called a flashbulb memory – a vivid, if not incomplete, image that remains like a snapshot in your mind. Kind of like the blinding flash of a camera irreparably tattooing a memory onto your brain - a scar if you will. In the case of my first period, it was a memory that would change my life forever.

DNA Explainer: What does it mean when someone says they are non-binary?

Non-binary people are those that do not identify with the gender binary i.e., they see themselves as neither female nor male.

On July 14, the world celebrated the 9th International Non-Binary Day. Started in 2012, the day is chosen to raise awareness around gender expression that no conforms with the legally recognized binary categories of man and woman. Interestingly, the date of July 14 was also chosen due to the fact that it bisects the International Women’s Day in March and the International Men’s Day in November.

Who is a non-binary person?

A non-binary person, also known as genderqueer, is one who, instead of identifying as a man or a woman, identifies as an intermediate or separate third gender or with multiple genders. They might identify with no gender at all and hence can be ‘agender’. They could also have a fluctuating gender identity which is called being ‘genderfluid’.

Trans ‘Hamilton’ Actor Accuses LA Production of Retaliating After Requesting Gender-Neutral Dressing Room

Brian Welk 3 hrs ago

A Black, trans and non-binary actor who has starred in “Hamilton” in both Chicago and Los Angeles has filed an EEOC complaint against the L.A. production of the show, saying their contract was not renewed after requesting a gender-neutral dressing room.

Actor Suni Reid, who has played roles including Aaron Burr, George Washington, Hercules Mulligan/James Madison and Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson and is openly transgender, said that they were repeatedly misgendered and physically threatened by other actors, specifically in the dressing rooms reserved for the male performers.

Reid adds in the complaint that they raised concerns about being mistreated several times, including in May and June amid discussions for a contract renewal for the Los Angeles production, which included a request that the production add a gender-neutral dressing room at the Pantages Theater. Their contract was not renewed starting in September.

Reid says in the complaint that they were told a part of the existing dressing room would be partitioned off with a sheet or curtain, and after Reid said this was inadequate, further negotiations were cut off. The complaint also says the production cited “problematic” social media posts as the reason for the delay, but Reid claims the company knew about these posts for months.

It also goes on to say that cast member Rory O’Malley, who plays King George in the Los Angeles “Hamilton” production, generously offered to give up his dressing room for Reid, but that Reid was still excluded and still rescinded their contract renewal offer.

A representative for “Hamilton” in Los Angeles did not respond to a request for comment.

Reid’s EEOC complaint even includes a poem set to the rhyming scheme of the opening number in “Hamilton,” “My Shot,” which you can read below:

“How does a Black-skinned, trans kid, child of divorce

From a public school, dropped in the middle of the Philly burbs

If not by providence, unpolished, under trauma

Grow up to sing in Broadway’s biggest drama?

The word got around, teacher told mom, ‘This kid is insane, ma’am.’

Put ‘em in some lessons just to get them on the stage, then

Got their education, took their talents straight to Pace, and

The world’s yours to entertain, run the gameplan

Suni Reid in Hamilton

Could not believe they made it to Hamilton”

“Publicly, Hamilton is a beacon of diversity and appears committed to causes seeking social justice and harmony,” Reid’s lawyers Lawrence M. Pearson and Lindsay M. Goldbrum said in a statement. “Behind the curtain, however, the Company’s management will force out a Black, transgender cast member simply because they stood up for themselves and advocated for a more equitable workplace, and therefore called that public image into question. We look forward to upholding Mx. Reid’s rights and hope this is a wake-up call for the theater industry about the systemic inequities that persist even at its greatest heights.”

Mx. Reid is represented by Wigdor LLP partner Lawrence M. Pearson and associate Lindsay M. Goldbrum.

I guess comrade isn't a bad substitute. Or friend. Just a way to refer to someone in an informal, friendly manner.

Like, if someone wanted to get your attention, but could see that you were maybe nonbinary, what would they say? I suppose Excuse me would do, but adding Sir or Miss seems more polite, and bro or dude more friendly.

Will people eventually say Mx? (Pronounced Mix?? Excuse me, mix?) In the same way I often refer to women as Ms. (though that's with the last name; pronounced Miz).
