Multigender, or polygender, is a term for someone who experiences two or more genders. It falls under the non-binary and transgender umbrellas. It can be used as a gender identity on its own or as an umbrella term. This includes bigender (two genders), trigender (three genders), quadgender (four genders), and so on, all the way up to pangender (all genders).
Multigender people may experience these genders identities at the same time making them kymenian, or their gender identity may change over time, making them genderfluid. If a person experiences fluctuation in the intensity of those genders, they could possibly be multiflux. The genders they experience can be male, female and/or any non-binary identities.
See List of Multigenders.
Polygender was first known to be described in 1995 as having "characteristics of multiple genders, deliberately refuting the concept of only two genders". In 1998, the word polygender was used in a transgender community on the internet called Sphere as an umbrella term for trans people whose genders were outside the binary.
