Hello, my teenager is trying to sort out some labels around sexuality. There is a transgender child in their class (was girl, now boy) and a girl has started dating them. Does that make the girl gay? I’m afraid I can’t help explain it.

  • Like everyone else, transgender people have a sexual orientation. Transgender people may be straight, lesbian, gay, bisexual, or queer. For example, a person who transitions from male to female and is attracted solely to men would typically identify as a straight woman. A person who transitions from female to male and is attracted solely to men would typically identify as a gay man.

  • When the transgender teenager was first a girl, but now a boy who dates a girl, I think this is a hetero sexual relationship.
