The acronym “LGBT” was once considered sufficiently representational of non-heterosexual sexuality and gender types. Well, it looks like we’re going to need a few more letters. A new Australian sex survey conducted by researchers at The Queensland University of Technology (QUT) has listed a whopping 33 options under the question “Which of the following terms do you feel best describes your gender?”. Here’s the full list, along with definitions of what they represent. While the fuddy-duddies that run our country continue to wrestle over concepts like gay marriage, Australian gender identity continues to expand exponentially. According to the latest Australian Sex Survey, there are at least 33 terms for “gender” that Australians now use to identify themselves. These range from “genderfluid” (someone who does not identify entirely with either the female or male genders) to neutrois (a non-binary gender identity which is considered to be a neutral or null gender.)
