Gender identity is connected with how you experience your gender inside. You might identify as a woman, man, be fluid, or fall somewhere in between.
For some people, their gender identity matches the sex they were assigned at birth but for others, it doesn’t — and that’s completely normal.
While some people sit within the strict classification of man or woman (known as the “gender binary”), others identify as transgender or non-binary. It’s all about how you see yourself and being who you are. And society’s reactions to this can impact how you feel, especially if the sex you were assigned at birth and your gender identity don’t align, triggering gender dysphoria for some.
