How do you ask someone’s pronouns in Spanish?

For pronouns when someone is speaking about you, they can use “elle.” or if you want, they could use “ellos/ellas.” I don’t think “elles” is used in that way. As for whether or not Spanish-speakers know that form well, I can’t say. You’d probably end up having to explain it a little.

Is everyone nosotros?

Nosotros is used for the pronoun, we. Using nosotros means that you are referring everyone in the group as being male. Nosotras, on the other hand, is basically the same thing, but you’re just saying that everyone in the group is female.
