Gender Non-Conforming

By

Definition:

Gender non-conforming refers to people who do not adhere to society's rules about dress and activities for people that are based on their sex. A gender non-conforming person may choose to present as neither clearly male, nor clearly female, but rather as a gender-free individual.

Some gender non-conformists are transgender, gay, lesbian or bisexual. Others do not identify with any of these categories.
