    Lavender Boy is a term for mlm and/or gender non-conforming men, including masculine aligned non-binary individuals. The term originated at a derogatory term in the 1920s to refer to feminine men and gay men. In the modern day it has been reclaimed by mlm who are gender non-conforming.

    Similar terms include rosboy and lavenian.
