In my opinion, this guide is long overdue. Many “how to play an LGBT+ character” guides are written by cishets based off of incorrect knowledge, poor research, and a general lack of understanding.
A lot of admins and roleplayers, as well as writers in general, have expressed interest in creating and playing nonbinary character but are either afraid of being offensive or are actually offensive. So, I will go through several sections not only on how to play these characters but about nonbinary people in real life.
This is a very personal subject and everyone experiences their own trans-ness differently. Also, full disclaimer, I’m very tired and very passionate and have NO filter so some of this might not make sense or might surprise you.
While this guide might seem very long, I feel like I’ve barely touched on a lot of the stuff I wanted to discuss. I encourage further research and I would be happy to answer any questions you might have.
