*“Gender Identity” means an individual’s actual or perceived gender, which includes transgender and gender fluid, and also takes into account an individual’s self-image, appearance, expression, or behavior, whether or not that self-image, appearance, expression, or behavior is different from that traditionally associated with the individual’s sex assigned at birth.
