16 TV Shows With Nonbinary Characters
These shows are giving us the nonbinary representation we NEED!
Nonbinary people are hugely underrepresented in media, but thankfully, that's been slowly changing on television over the last few years. At first, nonbinary characters started being introduced on cable shows like Billions, but now have spread all the way to kids shows, even on the Disney Channel.
In fact, a surprisingly large amount of kids shows feature nonbinary characters, with many of them being introduced just this year. Of course, there's still a ways to go, but it's still nice to see.
To celebrate, here are 16 TV shows with nonbinary characters (along with the nonbinary actors who play them)!
