Transgender

(pronounced – tranz-jen-duh | trænz ˈʤɛndə)
Part of the Gayther: understanding and taking pride in gender identities series
Gender Image - Transgender
A transgender individual identifies with a specific gender or sex, different from the one they were assigned at birth. Transgender people are physically one gender; however, they know that they belong to the opposite sex, effectively a man trapped in a woman’s body or vice versa. Transgender individuals will often undergo transitioning surgery to change their appearance and anatomy to ultimately change their outward appearance to reflect their true inner self. Trans or Transgender is an umbrella term for the process of transition, with the word transexual typically used with a person who has undergone reassignment surgery or hormone replacement therapy. It is important to note that transgender people will define their gender as male or female rather than trans. The terms FTM or AFAB are abbreviations for a female at birth or assigned female at birth. Alternatively, MTF or AMAB are abbreviations for a male at birth or assigned male at birth
