An individual whose gender identity is different than the sex assigned at birth. Someone who was assigned the male sex at birth but who identifies as female is a transgender woman. Likewise, a person assigned the female sex at birth but who identifies as male is a transgender man. Some individuals who would fit this definition of transgender do not identify themselves transgender; rather, they identify simply as men and women, consistent with their gender identity.
