Non-binary Gender identities
Gender identities that don't conform with the binary gender stereotypes, such as "Butch- Femme", transgender, gender- queer, are perceived as abnormal and as such, are not acknowledged as a valid experience.
BPT may support the embodiment process of other non-binary identities, by the embodiment of the marginalized non-binary gender, creating a new context, in which the gender identities were acknowledged as a new form of experience, with a new meaning and new genderial power relations.
