International Non-Binary People's Day provides an opportunity to honour, uplift and affirm non-binary individuals and their diverse identities while shedding light on the unique challenges the non-binary community faces. Today we delve into the significance of International Non-Binary People's Day, and offer tips on becoming a better ally.
What is International Non-Binary People's Day?
International Non-Binary People's Day, observed each year on 14th July, serves as a global celebration of non-binary identities. Non-binary refers to individuals whose gender identity does not exclusively align with the categories of male or female. This day promotes visibility, acceptance, and respect for non-binary people while raising awareness about the unique issues they encounter.
Becoming a Better Ally to Non-Binary People
Being an ally is an ongoing commitment to learning, unlearning, and actively supporting non-binary individuals. Here are a few tips to help you be a better ally:
Take the time to learn about non-binary identities, gender diversity, and the experiences of non-binary people. Recognize that everyone's journey is unique, and it's important to listen and respect individual stories.
Use Correct Pronouns
Respect individuals' pronouns and use them consistently. If you're unsure, politely ask someone for their preferred pronouns and make an effort to use them correctly.
Challenge Binary Assumptions
Break free from binary thinking and challenge societal norms that reinforce the gender binary. Embrace and celebrate the fluidity and diversity of gender identities.
Amplify Non-Binary Voices
Centre non-binary voices by sharing their stories, art, and accomplishments. Use your platform to raise awareness and advocate for non-binary rights.
