(adjetivo / sustantivo)

This term is used often by AFAB people to express a relationship to masculinity or maleness, but who may not have a completely male identity. It is used predominantly in the Black lesbian community, as it was used as a term for strong Black men during slavery. It may be seen as appropriative or inappropriate depending on context. Studs may or may not transition physically, legally, or socially. Categorically, studs are considered under the gender-non-conforming and trans+ umbrellas but may or may not identify with those terms or others individually. Those decisions are based on their understanding of their relationship with gender and their access to transitioning within their culture.

e.g. Grace viewed himself as a stud but was not interested in transitioning.
