What does it mean to be Transgender?
Transgender people are those whose gender identity is different from the gender they were assigned at birth.  'Trans' is often used as a shorthand for Transgender.  People who are not transgender, and identify with the sex they were assigned at birth are cisgender (of Latin origin meaning "on the side of").  Non-binary is a term for people who do not solely identify as either male or female, or may identify as both, or neither.  Everyone - transgender or not - has a gender identity.  Most people never think about what their gender identity is because it matches their sex at birth. Just like cisgender people, transgender folks are represented on all points of the scale from masculine to feminine.  There is a common misconception that all trans people are born as either male or female, and transistion to the opposite end of the binary scale.  Not all trans people will have gender reassignment surgery or transition to the opposite gender, many will only transition socially and/or to a point on the gender spectrum with which they feel fits their identity.  Many do not identify with the traditional binary labels of male or female.  There is no one way to be trans.
