Brochure: Gender Affirming Options for Gender Independent Children and Adolescents

illustration of a parent and child holding their hands up to make a reflection of a heart

For many people, the sex they are born with (assigned at birth) is aligned with who they are. But for some, their sex and gender identity are not aligned. For example, a child whose sex is assigned male at birth, may be a girl on the inside; a child whose sex is assigned female at birth, may be a boy; or a child assigned as male or female may not identify as either a boy or a girl. These kids are sometimes called gender independent. Other terms are non-binary, gender creative, gender non-conforming, gender-expansive, trans, and for some Indigenous children, Two Spirit.
