The definition of "Gender Identity & Expression" is intentionally a broad one. It can include MtF or FtM transsexuals; transvestites or cross-dressers; intersex or hermaphrodites; futanari or newhalf (crude terms, but common in erotica/manga); alternative gender models (including third genders and neuter genders); ambiguity or androgyny; or just gender role reveral. There are really no limits here, other than that there be something positive in how the subject is dealt with.
If you're stuck for reading suggestions, stop on by my Bibrary Index site (which can now be sorted by either genre or LGBT theme), or check out my Goodreads page and check out my bookshelves (alternate-gender, biography-memoir, transgender, young-adult) for some ideas.
