The BBC Teach programme, which is offered as a resource for the Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) curriculum in UK schools, includes a section dealing with gender identities. In the video titled “Understanding Sexual and Gender Identities”, a young boy asks: “What are the different gender identities?”, to which teacher Kate Daniels responds, “We know that we have got male and female but there are over 100, if not more, gender identities now.”
