Transgender are people whose identity differs from their gender assigned at birth.

Intersex persons are people whose sexual appearance from birth, in terms of chromosomes, gonads, hormone production and body shape, is not only male or female, but appears to be a mixture.

Non-binary is a collective term for gender identities from the transgender spectrum that are neither exclusively male nor female and are outside of the binary gender order.

Queer refers to people who deviate from the corresponding social norm due to their sexual orientation and/or gender.
