5 Quick Definitions to Help Expand Your Understanding of Sexuality and Gender

Pansexual? Asexual? Cisgender? What do all these terms mean – and what do they have to do with you?

You were probably taught that sex, gender, and sexuality are pretty simple concepts – that we’re all either men or women, attracted to men and/or women.

But if you’re operating on traditional ideas about these concepts, then you don’t have the right info.

And the more we can learn what’s beyond the narrow identity boxes society tries to put us all in, the more we can create a world of understanding for everyone’s identities.

So here’s an AJ+ video to break down a few terms that you might find confusing. We hope this helps you build your understanding for others – and you might even learn something new about yourself!
