Emerson Tedder uses the pronouns they or them to identify themselves.
They ask that you do, too.
Tedder, 24, identifies as nonbinary, a gender identity that is not exclusively masculine or feminine.
“There’s a vast spectrum of people who identify as nonbinary,” Tedder said. “They don’t all look like me.”
Tedder looks agender in appearance with the beginnings of a mustache and a tattoo on their right shoulder that reads “A.F.A.B.,” which stands for “assigned female at birth.”
