Transmasculine, sometimes abbreviated to transmasc, is an umbrella term that describes a transgender person (generally one who was assigned female at birth), and whose gender is masculine and/or who express themselves in a masculine way. [1][2] Transmasculine people feel a connection with masculinity, but do not always identify as male. Transmasculine people can include, but are not limited to: trans men, demiboys, multigender people, genderfluid people and nonbinary people, as long as they identify with masculinity. Transfeminine is the feminine equivalent of transmasculine.
