What does it mean to be transgender?

Typically, a transgender person is someone whose gender identity differs from the sex they were assigned at birth.

For example, they do not identify with the biological sex that is registered on their birth certificate.


Identifying as a trans or non-binary person is a completely individual process, meaning each person experiences it differently.

Generally, it consists of internal affirmation, external affirmation, and social transition.


A person’s gender identity is unrelated to their sexuality and does not influence who they are attracted to.
