Transgender and gender diverse (TGD) people have a gender identity beyond societal expectations based on their sex assigned at birth.1 TGD communities encompass not only identities within a binary gender paradigm but also gender diversity that includes nonbinary, genderfluid, agender, and bigender identities.1 TGD people may choose to undergo gender-affirming medical care, such as hormone therapy or surgical intervention.1
