The term enbylove or enbylover (EL) is an attraction to non-binary youth. Enby is a neologism of the initials "NB," or "Non-Binary." Loved non-binary children are called ELFs which is an initialism for "enby little friend." The term is said by Fediverse users to have entered use in 2019.
Rarely, if ever, exclusive
It should be noted that while BL and GL are often (but far from always) strongly preferential with respect to gender EL is a label that generally signals the inclusion of non-binary youth in a person's pattern of attraction, as opposed to an exclusive preference for them. It is often based upon the identification of non-binary adults with non-binary youth, and has striking parallels throughout history.
