D Very few people self-identify with the Transgender group. Transgender is an individual whose gender identity is not congruent with his or her biological gender, regardless of the status of surgical and hormonal gender reassignment processes. Sometimes the term is used as an umbrella term encompassing transsexuals, transvestites, cross-dressers, and others. The term transgender refers to a continuum of gender expressions, identities, and roles, which expand the current dominant cultural values of what it means to be male or female.
