Queery Pronoun Challenge

On July 14th, 2020, International Non-Binary People's Day,

Queery relaunched its #queerypronounchallenge encouraging people to post their pronouns on their social media pages, Zoom accounts and in their email signatures.

Why?

This primary violence prevention strategy of sharing your pronouns digitally is an easy way to show support to non-binary and transgender people. 

 

It can also assist people who are new to sharing pronouns get more comfortable doing so.

What should I do?

1. Add your pronouns to your social media accounts, Zoom account, and email signatures.

2. Take a screenshot.

 

3.  Post it with #queerypronounchallenge and tag @queery.us.

4. Tag five or more of your friends and colleagues to do that same.

I'm fine with my pronouns, so I don't need to do this:

That may be true, but just like wearing a mask is about protecting others, so is this challenge.  

Sharing your pronouns in your bio and email signatures can create a more inclusive environment for others.  Wouldn't you want your friends, consumers, clients, and colleagues to feel just as comfortable about sharing  their pronouns as you do?

Can you give me an example of what they might look like?  

Sure, see below.
