*Trans*— An umbrella term encompassing a wide range of identities,
appearances, and/or behaviors that fall outside stereotypical gender
norms of either male or female. The transgender umbrella includes, but
is not limited to, individuals who behave and/or dress differently
from their gender assigned at birth (i.e.- a female who wears men's
clothing); individuals who do not identify as either male or female;
and individuals who identify as a gender different from their gender
assigned at birth (for example, a person born male, and now identifies
as female [MtF] or vice versa [FtM]).
