If you happen to know a transgender person's birth name (the name given to them when they were born, but which they no longer use), don't share it without that person's explicit permission.Sharing a transgender person's birth name and/or photos of a transgender person before their transition is an invasion of privacy, unless they have given you permission to do so.
For example, rather than saying "Max is a transgender," say "Max is a transgender person" or "Max is a transgender man." And transgender never needs an "-ed" at the end.This forms visible diagonal lines where different colours cross, which give the appearance of new colours blended from the original ones.The resulting blocks of colour repeat vertically and horizontally in a distinctive pattern of squares and lines known as a sett.Like everyone else, transgender people have a sexual orientation.Transgender people may be straight, lesbian, gay, bisexual, or queer.We use the acronym LGBTQ to describe the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer community. Sexual orientation describes a person's enduring physical, romantic, and/or emotional attraction to another person (for example: straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual), while gender identity describes a person's, internal, personal sense of being a man or a woman, or someone outside of the gender binary.Simply put: sexual orientation is about who you are attracted to and fall in love with; gender identity is about who you are.For example, a person who transitions from male to female and is attracted solely to men would typically identify as a straight woman.A person who transitions from female to male and is attracted solely to men would typically identify as a gay man.If you must ask which pronoun the person uses, start with your own.For example, "Hi, I'm Alex and I use the pronouns he and him. " Then use that person's pronoun and encourage others to do the same.
