Terminology – Introduction to Gender Identities

One of the questions I am asked all of the time is; “what is trans”.

Well… that is a big conversation, but the long and short of it is that “Trans” means is from the Latin and means “on the other side of” whilst “cis” means “on the same side of”.  So both cis and trans are an antonyms paring.  A non-trans person is cis.

We use trans as prefix in modern life all of the time for example transport an transplant – we are taking something from a place to the other side of somewhere.

When we talk about transgender individuals, these are people whose gender identity is different to that assigned at birth; be they non-binary, fluid or binary in that identity.
