It’s easy to spot Dee Shull in a coffee shop in San Leandro: Shull is wearing a bright green T-shirt with big block letters reading, “Too queer for your binary.”
Shull is also clutching a purple purse with many colorful political statements, including one that says “They/Them” — which are Shull’s preferred pronouns.
Like others who identify as nonbinary, gender-nonconforming or gender-queer, Shull’s internal experience is somewhere along the gender spectrum rather than either male or female.
