It is generally used as an umbrella term for people who view their gender as being different from the gender they were born with.

Gender can also be expressed externally through things like clothing, behaviour and body characteristics. There is no official estimate of the size of the transgender population in the UK but a study by the Gender Identity Research and Education Society, funded by the Home Office, … [Read more...] about What does transgender and transsexual terms mean and why was Robbie Williams’ X Factor comment considered transphobic?

For one thing, it's hardly slowing him down. "I'm doing great. You might be surprised to hear that," Alda said as he revealed the news of his diagnosis on "CBS This Morning." "The reason that I want to talk about it in public is that I was diagnosed three and a half years ago, and I've had a full life since then." The award-winning actor, known for his iconic role in "M*A*S*H," has continued performing, launched a new podcast, and kept up his work at the Alda Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook University in New York.

I see that as the main stumbling block. If we actually knew what … [Read more...] about Round-table: What does Brexit mean for the NI economy?
