Living As A Non-Binary Person In A Binary World

[Dutch Lock Down Day Three Hundred Twenty Eight]

This TedX Talk is from 2017.

And still completely relevant.

But first the news:

A talk addressing the hardships and obstacles facing the day-to-day life of those who identify outside of the gender binary.

Graysen Hall, a 23 year-old non-binary individual, sets out to promote awareness and educate their audience on some of the trials that the transgender community faces. Graysen Hall is a 23 year-old non-binary individual, who is in the process of completing a Masters degree at the UKC in the School of English. Their talk is based on their experiences of living as non-binary and the hardships that are part of that experience. Living under the transgender umbrella, they often feel that their identity is invalidated by others, often from within the transgender community. In today’s talk they aim to educate those who are not aware of non-binary genders and to promote awareness, acceptance and equality.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
