Gender identity is a person’s internal sense of being male, female, both, or neither.
Gender identity is a person’s internal feeling about who they are and it may be different from their biological sex.
Gender expression is the way in which we present or show our gender to the world.
Society can often put pressure on people to define and express their gender in a particular way (for example: boys should dress like boys and girls like girls). This can limit the way that peoplefeel comfortable expressing their gender.
Things to think about:
How do you identify your gender?
How do you like to express your gender?
Do you feel like your gender expression is limited by society?
What aspects in your life influence how you express your gender (such as family, friends, religion, social media, cultural or ethnic group)?
