The genderqueer flag was created by Marilyn Roxie in 2010 with the help of the genderqueer online community. The term, alongside the term non-binary, is an umbrella term for anyone who doesn’t identify with the gender binary (male and female) – individuals who identify as genderqueer/non-binary may express themselves using a combination of masculine or feminine clothing, or a combination of the to.
In addition to being an umbrella term, genderqueer has been used as an adjective to describe people who, as I mentioned, challenge the gender binary. The genderqueer pride flag was designed in 2011 and consists of three colors – lavender, white and green. Lavender represents androgyny (meaning that someone combines masculine and feminine traits), or simply queerness, white represents agender identity (this refers to an individual doesn’t have a gender), and purple represents those who feel as though their gender identity is defined outside of the gender binary (male and female).
