an individual that sees themselves as having ‘two’ or ‘double’ genders, either simultaneously or varying between the two. Typically these genders are seen as male and female, or, indeed, masculine and feminine, but may also include nonbinary identities. Bigender individuals may further identify as being more masculine/male or feminine/female leaning.

Bigender individuals may present as androgynous, or present as more masculine or feminine dependent on circumstances or feelings. They may also experience a fluctuation in dysphoria.

Not to be confused with bisexual or biromantic.
