Non-binary Awareness Week 2024

Instead of "he/she" use "he/she/they". Instead of "open to both genders" use "open to all genders". Instead of "Ladies and Gentlemen" use "Honoured Guests". Instead of "Dear Sir/Madam" use "To whom it may concern". Instead of "mothers and fathers" use "parents/carers/guardians". Instead of "husband/wife" use "spouse". Instead of "brother/sister" use "sibling". Instead of "men and women" use "people/everyone".

Happy Non-binary Awareness Week!

July 8th – 14th is non-binary awareness week, a time to celebrate and spread awareness for those of us who do not identify as being a man or a woman, but as somewhere between or completely outside of these categories.

Check out our page for more info on what it means to be non-binary, inclusive alternatives to gendered terms, and what’s happening for non-binary rights in Scotland.
