Abstract

Despite the long history in many cultures and the increasing number of individuals currently identifying as nonbinary, they remain marginalised, at risk of victimisation and minority stress due to discrimination and harassment (Richards et al., 2016). Little is know about how, as an identity, it is understood in current contexts. This study, therefore, aimed to investigate the social constructions of non-binary individuals, in a hope to unpick why some of the prejudice or discrimination might occur.
