Gender Season: Exploring Identity with the Seasons

A new gender identity appears to have been recently added to the LGBTQ spectrum.

"Genderseason" was described by Dee Whitnell, a social media influencer, as a "micro-identity" used to describe when a person feels as though their gender changes with the season.

"Gender season is an individual who explores their gender identity in relation to a season, or all the seasons," Whitnell said in a video posted on YouTube. "So this might be somebody whose gender expression and identity is linked to one season — so, for example, winter — or this might be somebody whose gender identity and expression changes depending on the season."

A person claiming to be "genderseason" may identify as different genders during different seasons. Whitnell explained that some but not all transgender individuals like herself have gender identities affected by the seasons, giving an example of how she dresses more masculine in the summer and more feminine in the winter.

"For myself, I feel more masculine in the summertime. I wear more masculine clothing, I wear shorts, I normally have my hair up more, and I just feel more 'boy,'" Whitnell said. "Whereas in the wintertime, girl mode comes out and I’m loving skirts and dresses and having my hair down."
