We first got to know (or many of us) Courtney Act almost four years ago, when she came all the way from Australia to the United States and competed on RuPaul's Drag Race, where she made it all the way to the top three with Adore Delano and eventual winner Bianca Del Rio.
In the years since then, she has remained very relevant and popular, and on top of that is becoming a bit of a professor in her own right with a new video that she just came out with.
In a new MTV tutorial video, Courtney schools all of us on gender identity 101. In addition to explaining the differences between gender and sex, she clarifies gender identity vs. gender expression and popular millennial terms like cis gender, transgender (not transgendered), intersex, and what it means to identify as gender fluid, as Courtney Act does. She also argues on the importance of respecting a person’s preferred pronoun.
