Gender Identity Map

While we may have been taught that gender means boy or girl, man or woman, many of us realize that gender is far more of a spectrum, with many different, and related, identities and expressions!

This interactive graphic provides a general “map” of gender identities and expressions that people use, with their definitions and a few examples and further links and videos. Instead of the man vs. woman binary, this map uses Masculine, Feminine, Both, and Neither to describe a spectrum of identities.

Get Started!
Click “Start Prezi” on the graphic below. To move around you can:

  • Click the arrows at the bottom to move through at your own pace.
  • Click anywhere to zoom in. Click at the top or bottom of the screen to zoom out.
  • Hover your mouse to the right side of the screen to use the Home and Zoom In/Out buttons.
  • Embedded videos will play within the screen below. Links will open in a new tab.

The basic takeaway? Gender is complicated. But that’s okay!


This presentation uses a form of presenting information called a Prezi.
Thanks to intern Vanessa B. for her contributions and support for this project.
