Got questions about transgender people? We’ve got the answers. The ways that transgender people are talked about in pop culture, academia and science are constantly changing, particularly as people’s awareness, knowledge and openness about transgender people and their experiences grow.

This includes androgynous, bigendered and gender queer people, who tend to see traditional concepts of gender as restrictive.
