We can’t always assume the pronoun someone uses on the basis of their gender presentation. Some people feel that the pronouns she/her and he/him may not accurately represent their gender identities.  Transgender individuals and people who identify as gender non-conforming may elect to use other pronouns, such as xe/xyr or they/them singular.  Additionally, it is not always possible to know how someone identified identifies based on their outward appearance.  Consider the suggestions below to ensure that by using the proper pronouns, you make everyone feel welcome and respected.
