a gender identity which comprises of the words ‘demi’ (half) + gender. Demigender is an umbrella term for the various nonbinary identities beginning with demi: e.g. demigirl, demiboy, deminonbinary, demifluid.
Although the term linguistically states half, the idea behind demigender is that one identifies partly with a gender, rather than wholly, regardless of their assigned gender at birth.
