Judi Herring‘s TED talk about gender diversity.

“There are as many genders as there are people in the planet. Each of us has a different and independently self-determined gender: a gender print.”

Support and Answers


Parker wrote…

I was assigned the female gender upon birth and it’s just never…felt right. And when I was younger I understood that I really wasn’t a girl but a boy trapped in the wrong body. Over the years I have experimented with different things and found that I’m way more comfortable with myself when I’m posing as a male rather than female. Ive been labeled as “Gender fluid” and “Gender queer” which is partially right I guess. In the future I’d like to make the transformation from Female to Male, but I’d need my family’s support.

My sister’s the only one I’ve ever told about my true identity and have no clue as to even come out to both sets of parents. My mother has made hints for me which I’ve picked up on and once she asked me if I was really a boy, but I didn’t think she was serious.

Right now I just really need some support and answers to how I can come out to my family about this.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

We need a new Photo Curator!


Hey lovely Genderforkers!

We’re looking for new people to volunteer to help us out with content for the site!
We’re looking in particular for people to help us out with sourcing photos, and then posting them to the site, along with sorting through any photo submissions we receive, again to post to Genderfork.

At the moment I cover this, and it normally takes up an hour or so of my week, give or take, but sourcing new things can sometimes take a little longer. We’ll show you the ropes obviously, and do a write up about you in the volunteer bit of the site, and link to your stuff, if you’d like that, so if you’re interested then get in touch using the link below!

Click here to apply!

Thank you :)

Freiya, and everyone at Genderfork.

Profile: Anna


You can call me… Anna or Ash

I identify as… Genderfluid

As far as third-person pronouns go, … He, she , they

I’m attracted to… Females / female defined

When people talk about me, I want them to… Understand I am weird, to ask me what gender I feel like At the moment and that some days I feel really really upset

I want people to understand… That what your birth certificate says isn’t completely correct. You define yourself, not others

About Anna or Ash

I plan to go to school for special effects makeup and movie animation. I also have thought about going for musical studies to join a band and save lives of many

Seeing You


Someone wrote…

I see you. Not the “you” that your parents, your culture, or society envisioned. I see the you that you are, and I respect and care for that person. Don’t ever give up.

Question: Moving Through the Gender Spectrum


Kat asks…

I’m an 18 year old gender-fluid person from England, and I’m having a bit of a crisis.

I was assigned female at birth, but mainly dress as a male or androgynous. I recently found some old make-up from when I was a child, and tried some of it on and frankly I look like a clown.

I really want to embrace my female side, but I’m too scared, as reactions from all the people around me have literally been ‘but you’d look silly’ or ‘it’s a stage’.

I came out to everyone as gay and gender-fluid, but apparently people have a problem accepting me as my birth gender? I find this an ironic reversal of the all-too-common non-acceptance of people changing from their birth gender to their true gender, and would like some help from people who are gender-fluid or have good advice, on how to appear more feminine, and how on earth make-up works?

Anjimile – ‘Human Nature’


Submitted by Lee. Photo taken by Leah Corbett Photography.

“This is the photo featured on the album cover for Anjimile’s upcoming LP entitled ‘Human Nature.’

Anjimile is a queer non-binary black musician from Boston, and this album is a colorful, chaotic, melodic journey into the labyrinth of thoughts and feelings that we call the human condition. What does it mean to feel the body, the mind, and the soul fully? How does it feel to be a human being? What is the feeling? Anjimile explores these themes in an album written in 3 parts: Act I (You Were Born), Act II (You Will Be), Act III (You Will Die).

Instinctive Compassion


Someone wrote…

I saw someone today who I learned is transgender. It was the first time I saw this and I smiled as a first reaction. Part of it was I was surprised and because her beauty (that I failed to recognize) looked different.
I am sorry I did that and wish my instinctive reaction had been compassionate.

What’s your experience?

Recommendation: BROTHERS


Someone recommends…

BROTHERS
web series

I think it is a great series and I would like to see more episodes..

BUT: they need you all to produce another episode. I am living in Germany, I don’t have a credit card, I have no money to buy stuff from the site, and the shipping would be too expensive, and I cannot donate…
But I would like to help them.

So please!! Go on this site and help making another episode possible.

A World Where I Belong


Someone wrote…

I envision a world when who I love and how I dress are not viewed as fringe or something in the minority, something to fear or shun. I want a world where I am embraced as a human being, as an artist, teacher, and philosopher.

I see a world where I belong.

Question: Dysphoria


asks…

I need some kind of way to explain this to… well, myself, really:

What does gender dysphoria feel like?

Because I know what it feels like. But I can’t find any possible way to describe how it feels. I need to know that there is some kind of language to describe this, because if there is, then I’m not the only one experiencing it. If someone else describes something and I get it, even if I only kinda get it, maybe that means I’m not a alone.

To be Free to Express Myself


Someone wrote…

I’ve been thinking of coming out as genderfluid to most of my family on my 16th birthday and I don’t know what I want to do/say when I come out, I know I want to get my message across and get people to start using my pronouns (they/them) and for the people to use my preferred names instead of just my female name. but I’m not sure how to do this and I really want to come out and be free to express myself…
