What does someone mean when they tell me they are transgender?
When someone identifies as transgender or trans their gender identity differs from the sex they were assigned at birth. Gender identity is a person’s internal, personal sense of being a man, a woman, androgynous, or outside of the man or woman gender binary. GLAAD has a Transgender FAQ that discusses this further. The Identity Terminology section of this webpage provides a description of a) preferred name; b) sex; c) gender; and d) pronouns of reference. To learn more about gender identity, training opportunities are available through the Chief Diversity Office’s LGBTQ Safe Zone Project.
