This Executive Summary outlines the (1) methods, (2) results, (3) conclusions and (4) implications of two studies of sex, gender, and sexuality undertaken by Team Finch Consultants (TFC). Building on a model originally called the Diagram of Sex and Gender, TFC developed a more inclusive schema called the New Diagram of Sex, Gender and Sexuality (NDSGS, Bryan and Barr, 2015; see final page). TFC adapted the NDSGS to use as a measure and administered it to two different demographic groups, analyzed the data, and presented the results. The paper Letting Go of the Binary: Comparing Categorical and Continuous Measures of Sex, Gender, and Sexuality (Bryan, J, Barr, S, Overtree, C, & Mangine, J., 2016) is being submitted for publication in its entirety and is available from the first author.
