Gender Identity


In recent years, discussion about gender and identity have become less taboo. It is now commonly accepted that gender may not necessarily align with the sex assigned to you at birth. Gender is not fixed, it is an expression of who you are and how you feel.


Gender has been a central characteristic in social organization and in most cultures, gender is assumed to directly correlate with your birth assigned sex. But, what happens if the way you feel about yourself and your gender does not align with your sex?



‘Gender fluid’ is a term that suggests a level of flexibility in how you identify by gender. This term is an acknowledgement that gender is non binary and does not necessary need to conform to boundaries established by tradition.


Gender fluidity is a somewhat new concept and it can be difficult to understand. This doesn't mean, however, that throughout history people have always fit strictly within binary identification.
