Non-binary is an umbrella term for people who don't identify entirely as only male or only female, including non-gendered people. Despite roughly 1 in every 250 people being non-binary, there is very little protection for them. That's over quarter of a million people in the UK being treated unfairly by the law.

During the month before the 2015 General Election, we asked all candidates to acknowledge this and start making changes by taking the following pledge.
