Fierté Sudbury Pride recognizes that ‘transgender’ can be used as an umbrella term for all gender identities that are not cisgender (someone who’s gender identity matches with the gender assigned at birth). From transmen and transwomen, to genderfluid, genderneutral, androgynous, two-spirit, genderqueer, and so on, Fierté Sudbury Pride knows you are a valid member of the community.

Transgender: Term used to describe someone whose gender identity and expression does not match their assigned gender at birth. Transgender identities can be both binary and non-binary.

Binary trans people: Transgender people who identify with one of the two binary genders (male or female). For example, someone who was assigned male at birth but identifies, lives, and presents themself as a woman.

Some terms you may hear binary trans people use to describe themselves are FtM (female to male) or transman, or MtF (male to female) or transwoman.

Non-binary people: People who do not completely fall in the male or female gender binary. They may be both, none, or somewhere in between. For example, someone who is assigned female at birth but does not strictly identify, live, or present themself as either male or female and their stereotypical definitions and roles.

Some terms you may hear non-binary trans people use to describe themselves are: androgynous, non-binary, transmasculine, transfeminine, genderqueer, gender non-conforming, genderneutral, genderfluid, demi-boy, or demi-girl.

Some people in the non-binary spectrum may not identify with the term ‘Transgender’ as many associate the term with transitioning and not everyone of queer gender identity may choose to transition.
