People Who Identify As Genderqueer Share Photos For #WhatGenderqueerLooksLike

Though queer people are gaining more and more visibility in mainstream media and society, that doesn't mean that the images we're presented with are always accurate or representative of who we really are and how we live our lives. And sometimes we're still disappointingly absent, especially when it comes to certain subsections of our community.

Case in point: The dearth of images that authentically capture what it means to be genderqueer, which is defined by the UC Berkeley Gender Equity Resource Center as:

"A person whose gender identity is neither man nor woman, is between or beyond genders, or is some combination of genders. This identity is usually related to or in reaction to the social construction of gender, gender stereotypes and the gender binary system. Some genderqueer people identify under the transgender umbrella while others do not."

But fear not! Thanks to the hashtag #WhatGenderqueerLooksLike, we're hoping to help change all that. Feast your eyes on the beautiful folks who offered up a shot of themselves and if you want to be part of this stunning group, tweet your own photo using #WhatGenderqueerLooksLike.
