Resources for the Transgender Day of Remembrance Service 20 November 2017

 

Transgender people are people whose gender identity does not fully correspond to that expected by their biological sex. This is an umbrella term which can be expressed in different ways. Transsexuals can be regarded as transgender people who completely identify with the gender which is opposite to that which is expected by their biological sex. Gender reassignment is often urgently sought. However it should be noted that gender reassignment is not considered to be change in gender identity: instead it is regarded as an action required to correct a biological mistake. As it is a search for identity, no other behavioural implications are involved.

  

Gender and sexual variant people are fellow travellers in their interaction with societies, and the same conflict dynamics occur. However being transgender is not an indication of sexual orientation. As wide a range of sexual orientations are found amongst transgender people as those which are found in society at large.
