WATCH: 'David Makes Man' Star Travis Coles Teaches About The Gender-Fluid Title, 'Mx.'

David Makes Man star Travis Coles, who kicked off Shadow And Act's newest series "Rewind The Scene," also stuck around in the office to educate on what the title "Mx." means.

Coles, who plays Mx. Elijah on the show, gave a succinct definition to the title "Mx."

"'Mx.' is fluid, and that's it," they said. "I identify with every sort of label, if you will, or my pronouns. But what I love about Mx. is that it allows there to not be any sort of confusion as to whether or not they are deciding to be one or the other. It is completely fluid and I think we see that throughout the season with Mx. Elijah, as to present as a man for certain reasons, or just because."

Learn more about gender fluidity and how it impacts Mx. Elijah's life in the video below.
