Somebody who is not transgender and/or nonbinary. An individual whose gender identity matches their sex assigned at birth; for example, a cisgender man is someone who presently identifies as being “male” or a “man”, and was also assigned male at birth. Cisgender individuals may also be hetero, homo, bi(+) or asexual; it is not necessarily related to their sexual identity.
