Famous Transgender People

Transgender people are among the most discriminated minority groups in the world and are not legally protected from discrimination in many places even in the most developed countries. Being ostracized by their own families and friends, and not being provided with equal rights when it comes to education and choice of profession makes life very difficult for most of those who identify themselves as transgender. But there’s always a ray of hope for them, as these celebrity transgender people have proved. Overcoming social, economic, and legal hassles, many transgender people have successfully built a good life for themselves and are devoted to making the world a better place for others in a similar situation. Gynecologist Marci Bowers became the first trans woman to perform sex reassignment surgery. She’s a beacon of hope for others as are model Janet Mock, Olympic champion Balian Buschbaum, and musician Alexis Arquette. This section provides you information about the life and works of famous transgender people.
