What is the Gender Continuum?

Transgender is a catch-all term used to describe people who don’t feel that that their gender identity matches what they were assigned as birth. The term can refer to people who have transitioned (medically or not) such that they present as a different gender, and also to people whose gender expression may not fit neatly inside the terms “male” or “female”.
