Paraboy, also known as paramasculine or paraguy, is the male subset of paragender. Paramasculine individuals identify mostly as a boy/man, but not entirely. The male portion takes up 51-99% of their gender. The other 1-49% can be any gender or combination of genders, but the most commonly reported is agender. Paraboy is similar to demiboy, but it is more specific as with paraboy the boy part outweighs any other gender(s).

The female equivalent of paraboy is paragirl. The non-binary equivalent is paranonbinary.


The paraboyflux flag.

Paraboyflux, or paramanflux, is similar to demiboyflux. At one's most male one feels like a paraboy. At one's least male one may experience other genders.

The female counterpart is paragirlflux. The non-binary counterpart is paranonbinaryflux.


The term "paragender" was coined by Tumblr user queerspike sometime around July 10, 2014, but presumably before[1]. The paraboy flag was created by the Tumblr blog Pridearchive on July 24, 2014.[2] Another flag was created by user strbwryfemme. @strwbryfemme's flags should be used with caution as fawn has a history of exclusionism against m-spec lesbians.
