Gender Identity (T+)
What is Gender?
Figuring Out Your Gender Identity
From the moment we are born, most of us are treated like (and told) we are either a girl or a boy. This is called gender assignment. This can make things difficult to figure out when our gender identity doesn’t match the gender we were assigned or given.
Words people may use to describe their gender identity
We have put together some of the words people may use to describe their gender identity. You should not feel under any pressure to assign yourself a “label”.
There are other ways people describe their gender identity that are not on the list, and the language we have to describe gender continues to grow and evolve.
Let us know via the form below if your identity is missing or you can’t find a word to describe your feelings.
Let us know your thoughts!
We are always looking to improve our resources and website content, so please spare a few moments to let us know how you are finding our resources. We have 6 short questions which should only take a couple of minutes to complete and will be really useful for us when developing these and future resources.
