Unless you were already familiar with the LGBT world even the terminology may be confusing. And you don’t have to go that far, just the term ‘transgender’ what does that mean? I could give you a decent definition but instead, I thought it would be much better to offer the opinion of professions.
What others say it all means.
- American Psychological Association
- University of California San Francisco
- Center for Disease Control and Prevention
- University of California at Los Angeles
These lists are likely more extensive then you need, but they should answer any question about the terminology you have.
