“Gender dysphoria occurs when there is a conflict between the sex you were assigned at birth and the gender with which you identify. This can create significant distress and can make you feel uncomfortable in your body.
People with gender dysphoria may want to change the way that they express their gender. This may mean changing the way they dress, transitioning socially (using the pronouns and public bathroom associated with their affirmed gender), transitioning medically or surgically, or some combination of these.”
