Transgender

by Henne Müller - Wednesday, 20 April 2022, 6:58 PM
 

People whose gender identity or expression differs from the sex assigned to them at birth. Some transgender people identify and present themselves as either a man or a woman; others identify with a gender nonconforming or non-binary gender category. Transgender people identify themselves by many different terms, some of which are specific to local cultures (as defined by Astraea Lesbian Foundation for Justice and Mama Cash, see above).
