What Is ‘Transgender’?
Transgender is an umbrella term for people who experience their gender differently from their gender at birth. These individuals experience a consistent and persistent discomfort with gender identity, causing extreme distress. Gender identity is one’s psychological sense of being male, female, some of both or neither.
