Trans Man

Trans Man

(compound noun)

A man who was not apparently intersex at birth and was mistakenly assigned female at birth. Trans men are not necessarily masculine in the same way that cisgender men are not necessarily masculine. Trans men may or may not transition physically, legally, or socially. That decision is based on their understanding of their relationship with gender and their access to transitioning within their culture.

e.g. Leon was excited to see that the guest speaker was a trans man.
