Cause we’re in an aro board. And while Izana isn’t aro what happens to them ihmo seems like a non-binary aro‘s worst nightmare. 😉

In-universe if somebody of the third gender becomes strongly romantically attracted to a man / woman they transform to woman / man

I Wish You All the Best by Mason Deaver is a story about a nonbinary person who, after coming out to their parents, is kicked out of their home and ends up moving in with their sister. They join a new school and, throughout the story, work through their anxiety and fall in love. Here is a site that contains the trigger warnings for the story.

heard, but I haven't seen Sex Education for fear that it doesn't represent young queer people well.

I think Sex education do its best, though some characters can seem like token characters who are there to spore about a specific issues (which is something I see against the NB character, and is also true for the ace character who just disappeared in season 3). However there are a lot of LGBT+ characters with unique personalities, and their story are not only centered around them being LGBT+ for most of them. So you can give it a try and see what you think about it.

Dark Sun Gwyndolin from Dark Souls. Perhaps – it’s debatable (could be trans). Still, Gwyndolin is associated with all kind of “gender-indeterminacy”.

There’s a ring called “Reversal Ring” in Dark Souls 3 with the description:

“A divine ring granted to the Darkmoon Gwyndolin in his youth.
Causes males to perform female actions, and vice-versa.
Gwyndolin was raised like a daughter through the aura of the moon, and was said to behave like a sullen brooding goddess.”

There's a number of NB characters in Steven Universe, as well as a canonically aro/ace side character and several sapphic relationships.
