The term “non-binary” describes someone who does not identify exclusively as a man or a woman. Non-binary people may identify as being both a man and a woman or as falling completely outside these categories. Many non-binary people also identify as transgender, though not all do.
Non-binary peoples day was first celebrated in 2012 and provides an opportunity to recognise that gender is a spectrum and to normalise it as such.
Activities could include awareness and education within agencies about the distinction between sex and gender, developing a gender-neutral language guide to encourage the use of gender neutral pronouns in agency communications and removing the requirement to identify exclusively male or female categories on documents such as surveys and forms.
