Given that individuals who deviate from the female/male gender binary often experience resistance and violence, I examine the role of Tumblr as a site for non-binary and genderqueer world-making. Despite the fact that no space, digital or otherwise, can be completely safe, non-binary and genderqueer individuals utilize Tumblr as a safer space. My dissertation answers the questions: what literacies have gender non-binary individuals enacted as they explore their non-normative identities on Tumblr, and what worlds have gender non-binary individuals created on Tumblr and what can they tell us about how non-binary gender literacies function in the networked counterpublic of Tumblr?
