Bigender: someone whose sense of gender identity encompasses of two gender expressions.

Cisgender: people who identify with the gender they were assigned with at birth.

Demiboy: an identity describing someone who identifies, but not wholly, with being a man, boy, or masculine – regardless of their assigned gender.

Demigirl: an identity describing someone who identifies, but not wholly, with being a woman, girl, or feminine – regardless of their assigned gender.

Genderfluid: people who don’t identify themselves as a fixed gender – their gender expression will deviat over time.

Genderflux: a gender identity in which the person’s gender’s, or perception of it, intensity varies over time.

Pangender: people who define themselves as having more than one gender expression.

Transgender: someone who doesn’t identify as the gender they were assigned.

Trigender: a gender identity that means the person experiences “three genders” or three expressions – often Masculine, Feminine, and one of the Non-Binary expressions.

X-Gender: a gender identity for people who are not expressly masculine or feminine. Often used by Governments as a mark to say that someone is neither Male or Female.
