The purpose of this paper is to explore the gender identity of people with learning disabilities as a precursor to considerations of gender dysphoria.
Discussion supported by illustrations from the literature.
There is limited research on gender identity for people with learning disabilities.

This is personal perspective on gender and people with learning disabilities which may support work with people who question their gender.
