    The transemphatic flag[1]

    Transemphasis is a word that refers to those who emphasize transness as a very important part, or the most important part, of their identity. It has ties to concepts such as trans radicalism, anti-assimilationist queerness, and trenderpunk and is based on embracing transness as a concept and state of being. One may identify only as trans, and nothing else, or identify primarily as trans*, more so than as a trans men, trans women, transfem, transmasc, non-binary, etc. It is an identity defined by transness. One may also say that they would always be trans, even if they were assigned a different gender at birth.

    If one identifies as transemphasic in addition to another label, for example, a transemphatic woman or a transemphatic man. It would be understood as the person wanting to emphasize their transness, not their womanhood/manhood. A transemphatic person puts the focus on the trans part of themself, not the woman/man/etc. part.[2]

    The concept or state of transemphasis can be a visible one, shown through clothing, pronouns, names, presentation, etc. or a private one, in the way that many labels are private.
