Overview

This paper looks beyond the medical narrative of transgender and gender nonconforming identities and demonstrates how members of the trans community define sex and gender through their own lived experiences. The experiences of those who participated in the study demonstrate that sex and gender are two separate forms of identity that each individual negotiates in their own life. These components of human identity intersect, but they are not interdependent. Therefore, the experiences of my trans participants represent that embodying a normatively incongruent sex and gender is the essence of congruency with their authentic selves.
