A MAP OF GENDER-DIVERSE CULTURES

As describes on the map:

“In Australia, indigenous transgendered people are known as “sistergirls” and “brotherboys”.  As in some other native cultures, there is evidence that transgender and intersex people were much more accepted in their society before colonization. Now, there are more stigmas attached.  But through an increasing number of support groups specifically aimed at sistergirls and brotherboys, who have their own unique psychological and medical needs, perhaps times will change again.”
