Spanish transmasculine person gives birth to baby

Rubén feels neither a man nor a woman. But on May 1st, he gave birth to a baby.

Rubén Castro (27) was assigned to the female gender when he was born. But the Spaniard feels neither a woman nor a man – he is non-binary. In the media, Rubén is often portrayed as a trans man, but the 27-year-old cannot identify himself with this term. “I’m not a trans man, I’m a non-binary transmasculine person,” the Spaniard writes on Instagram. This means that Rubén is non-binary, but identifies more strongly with the masculine gender, * reports.

And despite his tendency to be masculine, Rubén gave birth to a baby a few days ago. Luar was born on May 1, 2021. The baby is assigned to germinate specific sex. Instead of “he” or “she”, Rubén uses the gender-neutral term “hije”. With the birth of his baby, Rubén fulfilled a great wish: “I am where I always wanted to be. This is a dream.”
