Being Transgender: Sexual Orientation

What Does Being Transgender Mean About My Sexual Orientation? Am I Gay or Straight or What?

Being transgender has to do with your gender identity: how you feel about who you are. It has nothing to do with your sexual orientation, which is about who you are attracted to. Some transgender people are attracted to men, some to women, some to other transgender people, and some to people regardless of their gender. People may define themselves with different words, depending on who attracts them.

Regardless of who attracts you, rest assured that many transgender people have happy, healthy relationships with people whom they love. Remember, you deserve to be with people who respect you for who you are.
