(adjective | noun referring to people)
This term is intentionally hard to define, much as is its sexuality counterpart queer. It can generally be understood as a gender that is neither man nor woman, possibly a mix of genders, and possibly fluid. Genderqueer people may or may not transition physically, legally, or socially. Categorically, genderqueer people are considered under the non-binary and transgender umbrellas but may or may not identify with those terms specifically. Those decisions are based on their understanding of their relationship with gender and their access to transitioning within their culture.
e.g. Greyson is first and foremost a genderqueer.
