Wikipedia article "Genderqueer," viewed online November 6 2017 (genderqueer, also termed non-binary, is a catch-all category for gender identities that are not exclusively masculine or feminine, identities which are thus outside the gender binary and cisnormativity; genderqueer can include having an overlap between gender identities, having two or more genders, having no gender (agender, etc.), moving between genders (genderfluid), or being third gender or other-gendered)
GLAAD Media Reference Guide, viewed online November 6 2017 (gender non-conforming: a term used to describe some people whose gender expression is different from conventional expectations of masculinity and femininity; not all gender non-conforming people identify as transgender, nor are all transgender people gender non-conforming; non-binary and/or genderqueer: terms used by some people who experience their gender identity and/or gender expression as falling outside the categories of man and woman, not a synonym for transgender or transsexual)
