Definition of Gender Diverse

(1/2) > >>

Gwen Rhydderch:
I've noticed the term "Gender Diverse" used increasingly of late. Initially I assumed "Gender Diverse" to be synonymous with "Transgender". However, since reading a number of articles containing both terms, I sense there may be a semantic difference between them.

Can anyone point me to a formal definition for "Gender Diverse"?
I've searched both the forums and the wiki to no avail.

Many Thanks,

Gwen

Gender diversity is usually used in the context of equality. Gender variant is used more as a synonym or replacement for transgender. Here are a couple links that may be helpful.  :)

Not withstanding the wiki.

The 'gender diverse' community is increasingly used as a synonym for the LGBTIQA community and a lot easier to say.

Ah, so context is the key! That makes sense and yes, I did come across "Gender Variance" in the wiki.

Thank you,

Gwen
