Gender Variance

Definition - What does Gender Variance mean?

Gender variance refers to gender expression or behavior that is not characteristic of masculine or feminine gender norms. Gender variance is also referred to as gender non-conformity, gender diverse, or gender atypical.

Kinkly explains Gender Variance

The term gender variance is used as an umbrella term to describe all individuals that exhibit a gender identity or gender expression that is different than the sex that they were assigned at birth. If an idividual is gender variant, this does not mean that the individual necessarily identifies as transexual, lesbian, gay, or straight. Gender variant simply refers to a non-conformity to the typical gender expression dictated by the societal norm.
