International Non-Binary People’s Day
14 juli - 15 juli
International Non-Binary People’s Day is observed each year on 14 July and is aimed at raising awareness and organising around the issues faced by non-binary people around the world. The day was first celebrated in 2012. The date was chosen for being precisely between International Men’s Day and International Women’s Day.
Most countries in the world do not recognize non-binary as a legal gender, meaning most non-binary people still have a gendered passport and official identification. Australia, Bangladesh, Canada, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands and New Zealand include non-binary gender options on passports, and 23 US states plus Washington DC  allow residents to mark their gender as ‘X’ on their driving licence.
Non-Binary Awareness Week is the week starting on the Sunday or Monday preceding International Non-Binary People’s Day on 14 July. This is a LGBTQ+ awareness period dedicated to those who do not fit within the traditional gender binary, i.e. those who do not exclusively identify as a man or a woman, or who may identify as both a man and a woman, or may fall outside of these categories altogether.
