Sexuality and Gender

Transgender

Transgender people have a gender identity or gender expression that differs from their sex assigned at birth.

A lot of people feel that they cannot identify with the sex they're assigned at birth. This means someone assigned to be boy at birth (born with a penis) may not feel like a boy from inside. Many such people face a lot of discrimination in the society and takes a lot of preparation for them to ‘Come Out’ as Trans women or men. They can be sexually attracted to any gender.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, gender reassignment is an option some transgender people opt for. But you can be your real gender without a surgery.

It completely depends on what you feel is right. Some transgender people go by the pronouns of their transitioned gender, while some use they/them.

Absolutely. Sexuality and Gender are two different realms. You can be any gender and be sexually attracted to anyone.
