"They/Them": a non-binary teenager will address classmates

Bp Beaufill presents a 19 min film in Jan 2020 “They/Them”, from South Seas School and Television School.

A teenager named Julia changes “their” name to Ash informally, endures biology class lecture on the immutability of chromosomal gender (evading the fact that intersex happens) and prepares Ash’s own presentation explaining that Ash does not feel clearly connected to either binary gender. My own personal experience is that non-binary persons are usually perceived as female. 

My own writing practice is not to use a plural pronoun in an incorrect manner, but often repeat the name of the person as a noun.
