Gender identity refers to a person's internal sense of their own gender, which may or may not match the gender they were assigned at birth based on their biological sex. People who identify as transgender, nonbinary, or gender nonconforming may experience gender dysphoria, which is the distress or discomfort that comes from the mismatch between their gender identity and their assigned gender. It is important to note that gender identity is not the same as sexual orientation, which refers to a person's emotional, romantic, or sexual attraction to others. Gender identity is a separate aspect of a person's identity and should be respected and supported in the same way as any other aspect of a person's identity.
