Summary: Information regarding the transgender Unicode symbol, including displaying and encoding codes for emails and websites.


Main Document

The transgender Unicode symbol was first approved as part of Unicode 4.1 in 2005 under the name "Male with Stroke and Male and Female Sign" and added to Emoji 13.0 in 2020. The symbol is commonly used to represent those in the transgender community.

The transgender character Unicode U+26A7 is intended to display only as a black-and-white glyph on most platforms, websites, and emails but may look slightly different on various computers or web browsers. In addition, if the font in which the website displays the sign does not contain the symbol and there is no fallback font able to render it, you may not see it at all.
