    The varioriented flag.

    Varioriented (shortened to vario or varior), also known as cross-oriented, refers to someone whose sexual orientation and romantic orientation are "mismatched," split, incongruous, or mixed. A few examples include: someone who is asexual panromantic, someone who is gay (homosexual) greyromantic, or someone who is heterosexual omniromantic. Varioriented is typically used to describe individuals on a-spec (ace-spec or aro-spec, or both, but with different orientations on each spectrum) who use the split attraction model; however, there can be varioriented individuals who are both allosexual and alloromantic. For example, someone who is heteroromantic and pansexual. The noun form is variorientation or cross-orientation.[1]

    The opposite of varioriented is perioriented.

    History

    Variorientation was coined by Sarah (Tumblr user sparebear) on or before February 2014 as a "non-matching identity" for situations of romantic/sexual orientations.[2][3] Fy via beyond-mogai-pride-flags posted the pride flag on January 28, 2018.[4] There is no known meaning for the flag.
