When androgyny refers to mixed biological sex characteristics in humans, it often refers to intersex people. Regarding gender identity, androgynous individuals may refer to themselves as non-binary, genderqueer, or gender neutral, while others may identify as transgender men or women, or may be cisgender. As a form of gender expression, androgyny can be achieved through personal grooming, fashion, or a certain amount of THT treatment. Androgynous gender expression has waxed and waned in popularity in different cultures and throughout history.
