"Genderqueer" describes a category of gender that is neither traditionally "female" or "male." Many different, nontraditional gender identities fall under the umbrella term "genderqueer." Genderqueer individuals may identify as having a gender somewhere between female and male or, more commonly, out of the gender binary all together.

Unless told otherwise, polite pronouns for genderqueer individuals are the singular they and ze/hir pronouns. Most genderqueer individuals take offense being referred to as "it."
"Is Dakota a girl or a boy?" "They're genderqueer!"

"So, because she's genderqueer, it means she's a slut and sleeps with everyone, right?" "Haha, no. Genderqueer just means their gender identity. It has nothing to do with their sexual orientation."

"I'm a dude, so I don't really want to take home ec." "Dude, I'm genderqueer! I'll take whatever the hell I want and not worry about it."

Genderqueer people are people whose gender is not exclusively male or female. A similar term is nonbinary.

While genderqueer could be an identity of itself, some common genders that fall under the genderqueer umbrella are: agender, bigender, genderfluid, androgyne, ambigender, and neutrois.
Genderqueer is usually seen as falling under the trans umbrella, and some genderqueer people will call themselves trans.

Genderqueer is both an umbrella term for some nonbinary genders and an identity in and of itself. The genderqueer identity is one that is neither male or female, but often has a combination of both masculinity and femininity and/or something distinctly other. A genderqueer person might consider themselves between binary genders or totally separate from them.
