Gender & Sexuality

Gender identity and sexual orientation are not the same.

Gender identity refers to the way in which a person understands, identifies or expresses their masculine or feminine characteristics within a particular sociocultural context. This may or may not be aligned with the person’s assigned sex at birth. Some people may identify as one gender in one setting and a different gender in another.

Sexual orientation is the nature of a person’s basic sexual and/or romantic attraction to other people.
