An intergender person is one who does not perceive itself as a member of a single “traditional” genre (woman / man ). When an individual feels that he does not fit into those binary categories, he perceives himself as intergender.

The concept of intergender can also be mentioned as genderqueer , a denomination from the language English These words, in short, make mention of the gender identity not assimilated in the binary genders (female and male) and, thus, it is outside the cisgenders (the gender identity that coincides with the biological sex).
