*It is important to employ a broad definition of “trans” in this regard. This includes people who self-identify as Two Spirit, trans, transgender, transsexual, genderqueer, non-binary, gender variant, MTF, FTM, transwoman, transman, non-cis, gender dysphoric and/or bi-gendered, de-gendered. This list is not exhaustive, nor should it imply that these groups necessarily embrace “trans*” terminology.
