For this document, we use the following definitions:
- Transgender or trans includes anyone whose lived gender, gender identity or subconscious sex is different from that assigned to them. Non-binary and non-transitioning transgender people are fully included and equal under this definition.
- Cis means not transgender, transsexual, or intersex.
Note: We acknowledge that gender variance is described differently in other times and cultures – our aim is neither to erase or appropriate, but to learn from, these ways of describing gender
