Gender identity refers to a person’s experience of their own gender. Transgender people have a gender identity that is different from the sex that they were assigned at birth. A transgender or trans person may identify as a man, woman, transman, transwoman, as a non-binary person, and with other terms such as hijra, third gender, two-spirit, travesti, fa’afafine, genderqueer, transpinoy, muxe, waria and meti. Gender identity is different from sexual orientation. Trans people may have any sexual orientation, including heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual and asexual. Source: UN Free & Equal
