Abstract

This qualitative study discusses the experienced identity of gender non-binary young adults. Despite growing positive dis- course in the Netherlands toward gender minorities, in prac- tice this group still faces exclusion and stigmatization of their identity. This article draws from Butler’s (2004, 2011) concep- tions of deconstructing the hegemonic gender binary and het- eronormativity. It explores the layered experiences of gender non-binary young adults in Amsterdam. Through participatory observations and in-depth interviews, this investigation unrav- els the self-narratives of those who identify with non-binary gender identities and demonstrates how they cope with their minority identity and resist exclusion.
