Sexual orientation
 
What is it?
 
Sexual orientation
A person’s sexual orientation is determined by the gender of the people to whom he/she is romantically and sexually attracted.

 
Difference with gender identity
Gender identity is your perception of being a guy or girl.

Transgender or transsexual identity. Young people with a transgender identity identify with the opposite sex. They are convinced of being a guy or girl contrary to the identity associated with their sex organs. They often describe themselves as being a guy trapped in a girl’s body, or vice versa, as though their gender was assigned by mistake. Some transgender individuals undergo multiple hormonal treatments and surgeries to alter their appearance and sex organs.

Transvestism. Having a transgender identity is not the same thing as transvestism. Transvestism is the desire to wear clothing appropriate to the opposite sex, and to style one’s hair and use accessories typically used by the opposite sex, without the conviction of being the opposite sex. For example, a guy who wears a dress and makeup to look like a girl; or a girl who wears guy’s clothing and a false mustache.
