Style guide

Numbers. Number one to twenty should be written as words. Numbers in tens up to 100 should be written out (eg twenty, thirty, forty, fifty, sixty, seventy, eighty, ninety). Numbers at the start of sentences should be written as words. Other number should be written as numerals, with a comma between designating the thousand (eg 1,000).

Trans, transgender. Trans is an adjective and should be written on its own. So write “trans man” or “trans woman” never “transman” or “transwoman”. Terms such as transsexual or crossdresser should be avoided unless they describe how someone describes themselves. Trans* (with an asterisk) is generally not needed as the term is seen as already inclusive, but this may vary so trust the author if they have reasoning for including the asterisk.
