Get ready to celebrate inclusivity and diversity on July 14 with International Non-Binary Peoples Day! This day was first established in 2012 as a way to recognize and honor individuals who identify as non-binary, meaning they do not exclusively identify as male or female. It's a day to celebrate the unique experiences and perspectives of non-binary individuals and raise awareness about their presence in society. So let's come together and embrace all gender identities on this joyous occasion!
