third gender

A nonbinary and/or transgender identity in which individuals do not identify as male or female, but a third gender. Also an umbrella term for a wide-variety of gender identities.

The term third gender has also been used in non-Western societies to describe individuals who fall outside of traditional gender norms, roles and expectations, and those societies and cultures that recognise more than two genders.

Sometimes synonymous with nonbinary.
