Trans Man
See FTM.
Trans woman
See MTF.
An umbrella term to describe a person whose gender identity or expression differs from the gender they were assigned at birth. Female-to-male (FTM) transgender people were assigned female at birth but identify and live as male; male-to-female (MTF) transgender people were assigned male at birth but identify and live as female. The term may also be used to describe transsexuals, cross-dressers, and people who do not identify as either of the two sexes as currently defined. This is a Western term that does not pretend to translate or include the wide variety or non-conforming gender identities and expressions that exist around the world.
