The Gender Unicorn graphic is SO helpful for visually laying out the differences between terms that are key to understanding gender and sexuality. I like it so much that I made a whiteboard style video about it specifically focusing on gender identity…

The Gender Unicorn is a graphic by the Trans Student Educational Resources organization (attached below). It visually represents the differences between gender, sex assigned at birth, and sexuality. Below I’ve provided definitions:
Gender identity: One’s internal sense of being male, female, neither of these, both, or another gender(s).
Gender expression: The physical manifestation of one’s gender identity through clothing, hairstyle, voice, body shape, etc.
Sex assigned at birth: The assignment and classification of people as male, female, intersex, or another sex based on a combination of anatomy, hormones, chromosomes.
Physically attracted to: Sexual orientation.
Emotionally attracted to: Romantic/emotional orientation.
The site offers an interactive unicorn for users to explore their own identity! Check it out: https://transstudent.org/gender/
