Someone who is androgynous will have both male and female physical characteristics, and it is hard to tell whether that person is male or female.

The term is sometimes used in modern context to describe someone who identifies as both male and female, regardless of sexual characteristics.

An androgynous individual is known as an androgyne.

Famous androgynous people include Prince and David Bowie.


Prince simultaneously exudes a strong sense masculinity and femininity. It’s sometimes hard to tell if he’s a male or female. But rest assured, he would hit you with a cross over, break your ankles and steal your girl in a second. RIP


Larry had always possessed smooth skin, refined features and flowing long hair. People were always mistaking him for a female; he was an androgynous male.
