Enbian, also known as non-binary loving non-binary (NBLNB), or owtic, is a diamoric orientation that refers to non-binary individuals attracted to non-binary individuals. One may or may not be attracted to other genders as well. This attraction does not need to be exclusive, as the label is used in a way to unify all non-binary individuals who love other non-binary individuals.


The term is most commonly used as an umbrella term. It is often used in combination with another identity to specify that one prioritizes their attraction to and relationships with other non-binary individuals. It can also be used as an identity on its own, if desired, particularly for those who know they are attracted to non-binary individuals but may be uncertain if they're attracted to other genders. The term can also be used to describe a relationship between two non-binary individuals.

The masculine equivalent is achillean. The feminine equivalent is sapphic.


Etymology

The prefix enb- of enbian comes from enby, a shortening of the word non-binary.

History
