ALTERNATRANS is a community for people who are into non-mainstream music & other stuff and who are also transsexual, transgender, genderqueer, gender variant, etc. Intersexed people are also welcome.

A person's Sex = genitals (sexual reproductive organs, junk, bits, whatever you wanna call them)

Gender = how a person identifies. for example: man, woman, boy, girl, boi, boygirl, girlboy, birl, genderqueer, genderless, etc.

Transsexual: a person who identifies as and wishes to (or has) become the opposite sex from which he or she was born physically.

Transgender: to change one's *gender* but not necessarily one's sex. Examples: dragqueens, drag kings, transvestites, crossdressers, genderqueers (depending on whom you ask), etc.

Genderqueer: not quite male but not quite female, or male and female, or something else entirely! it depends on who you ask.

the quote "we're not revolutionaries, but we are the revolution," is from a song by Johnny Hobo and the Freight Trains called "New Mexico Song". Johnny Hobo and the Freight Trains is a great folk-punk/anarcho-folk band, check 'em out! www.johnnyhobo.com
