Genderbende is a one-of-a-kind documentary that holds space for people who don’t fit the gender binary, allowing them to talk freely about their everyday lives.

The film profiles five young people in the Netherlands who identify as non-binary or genderqueer. They discuss important issues in their lives such as which bathroom to use, whether to take hormones, and how to accurately reflect their identity on dating apps where male or female are the only gender options. We witness their daily struggles as these young people are constantly besieged by curious strangers.

Recent arguments about pronouns have brought to the world’s attention that not everyone identifies as male or female. But much mainstream coverage ignores the humanity of the people in question. Genderbende pushes against that trend by revealing the human faces and ordinary lives behind these debates.
