Gender Identities

Gender identity is a person's internal, deeply held sense of their own gender (or lack thereof). Unlike gender expression, gender identity is not visible to others. An individual's gender identity may or may not align with their birth assignment. Most people, whether cisgender or transgender, have a gender identity of male/man/boy or female/woman/girl. For others, their gender identity does not fit neatly into one of those binary terms, such as people who are non-binary or genderqueer.

Sexual Orientations

Sexual orientation, also known as sexuality, refers to a person's sexual attractions (or lack thereof) toward others. It is not defined by sexual activity, which can be independent of a person's orientation. It also is not equivalent to a person's gender. While the most common terms are largely described using the gender binary of male or female, sexuality is more expansive than that.

Romantic Orientations

Romantic orientation is related to a person's romantic attractions or desires, generally expressed in terms of which gender or genders a person is attracted to in relation to the person's own. It differs from one's sexual orientation, which is associated with sexual attractions, and a person's romantic and sexual orientation does not have to be the same. The Split Attraction Model is sometimes used to convey these differences.

Compton's Cafeteria riot marker.png

The Compton's Cafeteria riot took place on an evening in August 1966 at Gene Compton's Cafeteria, an all-night restaurant in the Tenderloin neighborhood of San Francisco, California. The homophobic and transphobic management there frequently called the San Francisco police (SFPD) to remove and arrest queer customers, including that particular night. Frustrated by constant police harassment and profiling, patrons resisted and started throwing items at the SFPD officers. Allegedly, a trans woman may have sparked the riot when she threw a cup of coffee in a cop's face.

The riot was originally overlooked by local community members due to their focus on survival and the lack of time or resources for political organizing. Contemporary media mostly ignored it, even publications run by the gay community, and no arrest records remain in SFPD archives. However, the riot is now seen as a turning point for trans civil rights and a significant moment in trans resistance to police violence.
