You hopefully remembered timezones when building your application, you may have even remembered to support more than two names, but did you take into account transgender and non-binary gender users? There more to it than just adding options to the “gender” dropdown, way more. This article provides an excellent overview, of what you should be doing to be trans-inclusive.

Oh, it’s also open source!
