Transfeminine, often abbreviated to transfem, is a term used to describe transgender people who generally were assigned male at birth and identify with a feminine gender identity to a greater extent than with a masculine gender identity. Usually transfeminine people try to appear stereotypically feminine in terms in their gender expression in order to create social recognition of their dominant feminine identity. The genders that can fall under transfeminine include:
- Transgender women
- Multigender people whose strongest gender identity is a feminine one
- Genderfluid people who are feminine most often
- Any other non-binary gender who views themselves as significantly feminine
Transfeminine can also be used as a gender identity in its own right. Although they have feminine gender identities, transfeminine people may prefer not to conform to stereotypical feminine gender expression or gender roles and may not try to appear more feminine.
