Humanizing Genderqueer: Lived experiences of non-binary people.

Gender Wins: Recall a happy memory of when you felt most comfortable in your gender or most accepted as your gender by those around you.

When me and my closest friend dressed up for no reason and drove around town. I wore a suit and no one questioned me. It was one of the best feelings.

Gender Struggles: Tell about a time when circumstances would not allow, or you had to make sacrifices, to remain true to your gender.

When I got to family gatherings where all of my older relatives will be I have to wear a dress and not talk about my girlfriend and all my queer friends.

Humanist Involvement: Suggest something the humanist community could do to make a positive impact on your personal quality of life.

Include an "other" gender option on official forums and have more gender neutral bathrooms in public places.n.

How You Identify (optional): Name, age, gender, location, ethnicity, anything you deem relevant.
