About thevent

Non-binary gender identities are not only valid & beautiful, but are an integral part of human existence. Non-Binary Night Out is an in-person gathering intended to make space to empower, hold visibility for, and celebrate non-binary community members' excellence, power and joy.

This event will feature:

  • Open mic - Bring your art, music or poetry with you to share at the event! To participate in the open mic we ask that your work center around non-binary identity/gender expansiveness, whatever that means to you! You can sign up for the open mic through our sign up sheet on the night of the event, each open mic space is 2-3 mins long.
  • Games - What better way to mingle and meet new people than through a friendly card game? We will have games available for those who wish to participate throughout the night. Additionally, we will close out our celebration with NON-BINARY BINGO! A very special bingo game featuring non-binary trivia and Pride Merch Prizes!
  • Reflection - This event will give space for reflection through interactive spaces where you can write or draw out your feelings, and through facilitated community conversation space.
  • Supportive community - Non-Binary Night Out is open to everyone, regardless of identity. This means that you do not need to identify as non-binary to attend. At this event, and any other LOFT event, The LOFT is a safe space and we ask that all present practice active allyship.
    • If you have questions about how to practice allyship to the non-binary community, questions about language or pronoun usage, or anything else please feel free to reach out to The LOFT's Helpline at [email protected] or (914) 948-2932 x13.

We will also have an ongoing playlist featuring music by non-binary, trans, and gender expansive artists! Come with your song suggestions to add to the mix!

What is Non-Binary?

People whose gender is not male or female use many different terms to describe themselves, with non-binary being one of the most common. Other terms include genderqueer, agender, bigender, and more. None of these terms mean exactly the same thing – but all speak to an experience of gender that is not simply male or female. (learn more here)
