A more inclusive term synonymous with "transgendered," denoting anyone whose gender identity or expression varies from society's traditional ideas about "male" and "female." Unlike "transgendered," "gender variant" is only used as an umbrella term, making it less confusing. It also includes other sorts of folks (such as intersexual people, butch women, femme men, et al.) who might not be included by the term "transgendered."
