Explaining ”Nonbinary”


"I don't understand," they say, and now you've got some work to do.  Listener Kai asks how to explain what nonbinary means to their boyfriend's religious parents. Luckily, Faith knows how to talk to religious people so you know The Gender Rebels have some thoughts.


Checkout our episodes with our nonbinary friend Avery: Everything In Between and Nonbinary Talk With Avery.

A nonbinary person is not necessarily intersex, but Avery said it can be a helpful metaphor to people who prefer to start from a scientific example. Check out our intersex episode for details.

Faith is a fan of Sci Show and they also have an episode on intersex people.


Becoming Eve: My Journey from Ultra-Orthodox Rabbi to Transgender Woman by Abby Stein is just one of many stories from religious or formerly religious people dealing with queerness, transition, or being nonbinary or intersex.  Also it's just a great read. 

We love Austen Hartke and he has done so much fascinating work on queer interpretations of the bible. Check out his book Transforming: The Bible and the Lives of Transgender Christians if that YouTube clip piqued your interest.
