Gender identity issues relate to a number of issues that individuals can experience due to their gender identity.  For example, Gender dysphoria is when a person is unable to reconcile their gender identity with their biological sex and its related physical characteristics.  This creates discomfort, and upset.  Gender-diverse and transgender people may at some point in their lives, experience gender dysphoria.  However, this is not always the case, some people who identify as transgender and gender-diverse do not feel the need for medical intervention because they are at ease with their bodies.  The American Psychiatric Association include gender dysphoria in their Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V).  This means that gender dysphoria is now a recognised psychiatric diagnosis, which means that people who experience gender dysphoria are able to access health care and treatment.  Individuals may struggle with acceptance, transitioning, feeling comfort in their bodies and who they are, and more.
