I love Miles! I literally only started watching him a year ago because it was obvious to me that he was trans*.

Meanwhile I felt kinship with him before either of us knew we were trans :D

There is a long-lived Canadian fictional TV show called Degrassi (Degrassi this and that, the titles have changed over the decades; and I have seen every episode since it started in 1979). For the past few decades, it is about the students at a High School named Degrassi. They have had trans characters, and many gay characters (and cover some rather brutal real-life subjects such as suicide, Islamophobia, abuse, and diseases).

 

But in this new season of Degrassi: Next Class, they have introduced a genderqueer character. They do not consider themself to be a boy or a girl, and they came out completely on episode 6 ("#FactsOnly") of the just-released series on Netflix.

 

Degrassi now has a genderqueer character. Mainstream TV has taken this seriously. :)

That's pretty awsome :D I haven't seen the show in years but I'll have to check it out now (:

Not really media but it's rather rare to see forms where you don't have just "male" and "female" in options for gender, especially in non-LGBT+ groups, and it happened so I wanted to share this with y'all, it's from the website of the German left wing party Die Linke:

21317476_1758221077808278_67978217580587

"I am                 female            male                 other"

Just thought that was pretty cool :cake:

This bill from senators david norris (independent) gillian o'sullivan (greens) and fintan warfield (sinn fein) never went further than committee stage 

 

https://www.oireachtas.ie/viewdoc.asp?DocID=34851&&CatID=59

 

But it did have section about recognising non-binary identities.

 

The then minister for social protection and now taoiseach, Leo varadkar said

 

 I again confirm that the position of persons who are non-binary will be considered as part of the review, as will that of 16 and 17-year olds and younger children
