- Third, fourth, and fifth genders have been historically recognized in many cultures worldwide.
- Scientific research shows that transgender individuals literally have different brain structures.
- 1/59 people are born with reproductive or sexual anatomy that doesn’t seem to fit the typical definitions of male and female.
