There are many kinds of nonbinary gender identities. These include, but are not limited to:
- Agender people find that they have no inner sense of their gender identity. That is, they have no gender.
- Androgynes are a mix of female and male.
- Aporagender is separate from female, male, or anything in between, and isn't an absence of gender. The basic definition of maverique is similar.
- Butch and boi are queer masculine genders, which some use as nonbinary identities. The same is true for a queer feminine gender, femme.
- Demigender identities, such as the partly female demigirl, and the partly male demiboy.
- Genderfluid people have different gender identities at different times.
- Genderqueer is a non-normative gender identity or expression. This can be an umbrella term, or a specific identity.
- Intergender people have a gender identity in between female and male, and were born with intersex bodies.
- Multigender people have more than one gender identity, either at the same time, or sometimes changing between them. Bigender people have two genders.
- Neutrois is often a transsexual identity, and usually means a gender neither female nor male, but neutral.
- Xenogender includes many nonbinary gender identities defined in reference to very different ideas than female or male.
- 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 gender identities, some people identify as "nonbinary" only.
For 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.
