 Sexuality and gender identity-based cultures - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sexuality and gender identity-based cultures concern the culture, knowledge, and references shared by members of sexual minorities or transgendered people by virtue of their membership in those minorities or their state of being transgendered.
Sexual minorities defined by sexual orientation and gender identity — gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered people — are often seen as having a common culture, which can be called LGBT culture, Queer culture, or gay culture.
The study of transgender culture as such is complicated by the many and various ways in which cultures deal with gender.

 Gender role -
When an individual exhibits a gender role that is discordant with his or her gender identity, it is most often done to deliberately provoke a sense of incongruity and a humorous reaction to the attempts of a person of one sex to pass himself or herself off as a member of the opposite sex.
Gender is one component of the gender/sex system, which refers to "The set of arrangements by which a society transforms biological sexuality into products of human activity, and in which these transformed needs are satisfied" (Reiter 1975: 159.).
However, some have argued that gender roles themselves are abstractions of overall differences between men and women, introducing the idea of circularity and the idea of the social reinforcement of natural tendencies leading to a factitious separation between the activities of males and the activities of females.

Multicultural Queer Studies is a cutting-edge interdisciplinary field, tackling core issues related to sexual orientation and identity, gender identity, new social movements, and the nexus of race, ethnicity, and sexuality.
Drawing upon this ground-breaking scholarship and activism, we embrace the critical analysis that the concept of queer has forwarded, and we also explore the ways race/ethnicity is both formative of and informed by sex, gender, and sexuality.

 How Many Sexes? How Many Genders? When Two Are Not Enough
However, one of them acts as a woman, the other as a man. Thus, the crossdresser's gendered sexuality could be described as male homosexual crossdresser straight woman, whereas the partner could be described as a male homosexual straight man. Once again, their sexes remain unchanged but the first individual crosses genders.
Another element common to most people's sexuality which was also apparent in the stories told by these transsexed men was their, and their partners', abilities to selectively attend to more attractive features of their relationships, and to collectively and imaginatively supply missing components.
Persons may be transgendered on the basis of only their feelings about themselves, they may appear ambiguously gendered to others, or they may change genders and live unnoticed as another gender.
