Gender Identity

Your gender identity is how you feel inside and how you express those feelings. Gender identity is one’s innermost concept of self as male, female, a blend of both or neither. One’s gender identity can be the same or different from their sex assigned at birth. For transgender people, their own internal gender identity does not match the sex they were assigned at birth. For some people, their gender identity does not fit neatly into one of the two choices (non-binary and/or genderqueer). Some people’s assigned sex and gender are the same, or in line with each other. These people are called cisgender.
