The varioriented flag.

Varioriented (shortened to vario or varior), also known as cross-oriented, refers to someone whose sexual orientation and romantic orientation are "mismatched," split, incongruous, or mixed. A few examples include: someone who is asexual panromantic, someone who is gay (homosexual) aromantic, or someone who is heterosexual omniromantic. Varioriented is typically used to describe individuals on the a-spec who use the split attraction model; however, there can be varioriented individuals who are both allosexual and alloromantic. For example, someone who is homoromantic but bisexual. The noun form is variorientation.

The opposite of varioriented is perioriented.

History

Variorientation was coined by Sarah (Tumblr user sparebear) on or before February 2014 as a "non-matching identity" for situations of romantic/sexual orientations.[1][2] Fy via beyond-mogai-pride-flags posted the pride flag on January 28, 2018.[3] There is no known meaning for the flag.
