what does it mean to be genderqueer?


this is the genderqueer flag. the  lavender represents androgynes and androgyny. it also represents the  “queer” in genderqueer, as lavender is a colour that has long been associated with “queerness”. the white represents those who are agender, and the green represents those whose identities are defined outside of and without reference to the binary.

It didn’t come to me as a moment of revelation. I didn’t wake up one morning with an epiphany. For me, it was something that I slowly realised over years of not feeling like I fit in and it took me a while to discover the name of what it was. Genderqueer: somewhere between male and female, and some days I feel like neither at all.
