Non-binary, also known as enby or abbreviated as NB, encompasses gender identities that defy the conventional male and female binary system. Individuals identifying as non-binary may:

Embrace an androgynous gender identity, blending both masculine and feminine aspects, as seen in androgynes.
Identify between the traditional categories of male and female, exemplified by intergender individuals.
Embrace a neutral or unrecognized gender identity, including agender, neutrois, or various xenogenders.
Hold multiple gender identities, such as bigender or pangender.
Experience a fluid gender identity that varies over time, known as genderfluid or genderflux.
Have a partial or weak connection to a gender identity, as in the case of demigender individuals.
Be intersex and identify as such, referred to as amalgagender.
Adopt a Galactian Alignment identity, created to describe genders without adhering to binary terms.
Embrace culturally specific gender identities rooted in their own or their ancestors' culture.
Identify as a third gender not limited to a specific culture, such as Proxvir, Juxera, or Maverique.

Non-binary individuals may also identify as transgender and/or transsexual, with the term genderqueer overlapping significantly with non-binary. While non-binary is often preferred, the term "queer" may be used as a transphobic insult.

Those identifying as non-binary might pursue gender transition to align their gender expression with their internal identity. Preferences for androgynous appearances, unisex names, gender-neutral titles like Mx., and gender-neutral pronouns are common, although some may prefer more traditionally masculine or feminine expressions or a blend of both.

Non-binary individuals can have any sexual orientation. If primarily attracted to a single gender, they may use gender-specific terms like androsexual or gynosexual.

When it comes to pronouns, non-binary individuals can choose any pronoun they prefer. While many use they/them pronouns, the choice is personal and not necessarily tied to gender alignment. Some may even use neopronouns like xe/xem, zey/zem, per/pers, or ne/nim, and the variety of options extends to nounself pronouns or self-created pronoun sets.

This list is not exhaustive, as individuals may choose or create pronouns that resonate with their unique identities.
