History[edit | edit source]
The term was coined in November 12, 2018 by Tumblr user wedontcareaboutyourbinary, together with torensexual. The prefix trixen- combines the Latin noun suffix -trix, used to form feminine agent nouns, also used in trixic, with en, based on the LGBT+ colloquial term enby, itself based on the English pronunciation of nb, an initialism of non-binary. The flag was created in November 13, 2018 by nblmgalaxy. The color orange was chosen as a blend of pink for women and yellow for non-binary people; white stands for the expansiveness of the multi-attraction spectrum and lavender for queerness and non-normativity.
