Pronouns are a part of everyday language - a lot of the time we use them without thinking! Pronouns are a way of referring to someone without using their name. (See how we just used 'their'?)

However, it's also an important part of someone's gender identity that should be respected and celebrated. Using the wrong pronouns can be harmful and upsetting.

Read our guide below on how to use pronouns and make them a part of your everyday routine.

Everyone has their own pronouns and it's important to respect one another's

Everyone makes mistakes sometimes -  if you make a mistake, apologise and use the correct pronouns.  Be mindful of each situation - for example, if you use the wrong pronoun in front of a group of people, use the correct pronouns and apologise privately to avoid putting non-binary or gender nonconforming folks in awkward positions!
