When we think of international non-binary people, we think of diversity and being diverse. Unfortunately, the reality is that the majority of these individuals are cisgender. In fact, the best way for me to describe a non-binary person is someone who is not male- or female-bodied. In short, the non-binary people I know are not cisgender.

For the most part, non-binary people are usually of the “they didn’t choose to be non-binary” variety. Being non-binary doesn’t necessarily stop you from having certain genders, it just means you don’t identify as a certain gender. This makes being non-binary a more fluid category of identity than others. It’s also a way for some people to use gender as a way to be different.

As a non-binary person I’m proud of how my non-binary identity has made it through my transition, the only thing I’ve ever wanted to do is to be a non-binary person for a bit longer. I’ve never wanted to feel like a second-class citizen in a sense that my gender is a hindrance to my work in the world, but I still want to have a voice.

The day after International People’s Day 2021, I have the honor of receiving a letter of support from my friend, the non-binary person who I first met in 2013. I’m very excited to share this letter with you in hopes that you’ll be inspired to go out and make an impact with your life to help other non-binary people. Thank you so much, for reading, I appreciate it.

The letter is written by my friend, who has non-binary self-identity. Since 2013 she has been involved in a project called “The Non-Binary Project” to help non-binary people. She started this project to give a voice to non-binary people, and to help them become more comfortable in who they are. Because of the way this project works, there is no one person who is in charge of it, it is all an open community.

The project is actually run by the same people who write the IFC series of books. They want to do more than just give a voice to non-binary people, they want to build a community. They also want to offer more resources for non-binary people. For instance, they have made a site called The Non-Binary Learning Network to help non-binary people find more books, movies, and concerts.

But I wouldn’t want to do that with a bunch of people who are already in control of the project. The idea is to build a community by giving people the tools to help them find books, movies, and concerts.

It’s a great idea, but it doesn’t feel like a lot of effort.

This is the same problem that has been discussed since the creation of International Non-Binary Day (INBD) in 2016. Non-binary people and allies have been struggling for years to gain the resources and support that they need to support the cause, but it’s still not happening. Instead of building a community of allies, the more recent international community, INBD, and similar initiatives, have been working to build a movement.

In the past year or so there have been several prominent efforts to support non-binary people in their fight for full rights for self-identity. It has been a great struggle, and I know it has been a struggle for some of you too. But here’s the thing: We don’t need an international community of allies. We need a movement to help us. We need a movement to build a support for full rights, for full self-identity rights.
