That is to say, an individual may identify as a particular gender, but that individual may express that gender in various ways; what we perceive as gender has little direct attachment to the deeper gender identity of the individual. Many of our expressions of gender are culturally based performances)
    • found: About.com web site, May 18, 2011(Gender Expression is the physical manifestation of one's gender identity, usually expressed through clothing, mannerisms, and chosen names. Transgender people usually have a gender expression that matches their gender identity, rather than their birth sex. Gender Identity is a person's internal sense of being a man or woman or boy or girl. For transgender people, their gender identity will not match the sex they were born with.)

Often, but not always, this corresponds to the person's sex as assigned at birth, so that a person born biologically male or female often dresses, adopts a hair style, and uses a name and pronoun in ways that reflect the culturally accepted roles associated with their birth sex.)
