There are many kinds of nonbinary gender identities. Just a few of these identities are:
- Transgender is an umbrella term for all genders that go beyond society’s ideas of gender, which includes some kinds of binary gender people. However, some call their gender identity simply "transgender," as a nonbinary identity itself.
- Nonbinary is an umbrella term for all who don't identify as just female or male. Though there are many kinds of nonbinary identities, some people identify as "nonbinary" only.
- Intergender people have a nonbinary gender identity and were born with intersex bodies. Androgyne has a related meaning.
- Genderqueer is a non-normative gender identity or expression. This can be an umbrella term, or a specific identity.
- Agender people find that they have no inner sense of their gender identity. That is, they have no gender.
- Neutrois is often a transsexual identity, and usually means a gender neither female nor male, but neutral.
- Genderfluid people feel they have different gender identities at different times. Bigender people have two, changing between them, or at the same time.
For many more, see a list of nonbinary identities. In addition to those in the above list, many cultures have traditions that give recognition to more genders than in the Western gender binary: see gender-variant identities worldwide.
