This week we are tackling a topic many may be unfamiliar or uneducated about. Mason Aid is here to talk about non-binary gender identity. Mason is an LGBTQ educator and advocate who helps educators and mental health professionals know how to better support teens as they come out and/or deal with mental health issues. Mason and I discuss what it means to be non-binary, how this identity has implications beyond just pronoun use and how people can be good allies for those who identify as non-binary.
Connect with Mason! Check out Mason’s website and follow them on Instagram and Facebook.
Year of Action: Consider, as Mason said, what your next step is. For you is it using non-binary pronouns when appropriate? Is it getting curious, asking more questions, doing more research? I encourage you to follow Mason and other non-binary individuals, do some learning and see what you discover. Figure out that next step and move towards it.
