International Nonbinary People’s Day
July 14, 2023
An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day 14 of July, repeating indefinitely
International Non-Binary People’s Day is observed each year on 14 July and is aimed at raising awareness and organising around the issues faced by non-binary people around the world. The day was first celebrated in 2012, started by Katje van Loon. The date was chosen for being precisely midway between International Men’s Day and International Women’s Day.
Most countries in the world do not recognize non-binary as a legal gender, meaning most self-identified non-binary people still have a passport matching their assigned sex and official identification. Australia, Argentina, Bangladesh, Canada, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, and the United States include non-binary gender options on passports, and 23 US states plus Washington DC allow residents to mark their gender as ‘X’ on their driving licence.
