Is Alex a boy or a girl?



You are very welcome to Ask Alex.  

Thank you so much for asking such an important question. Asking questions such as this or sharing our thoughts and feelings can be really tough; at Childline, we believe that talking makes us stronger. Well done for being so brave!  

It sounds like you are wondering if Alex is a boy or a girl. Alex is non-binary and doesn’t see themselves as either male or female. We believe that gender does not define anyone. What do you think about this?  

If you would like more information on being non-binary, you could take a look at some of these websites:, and there’s also a short video on about gender identity. You will also find a few articles on about this too.  

We hope this has answered your question. If you do have any further questions, please feel free to contact Childline by phone on 1800 666 666, the instant messaging service on or text on 50101.
