By: Megan Hanson and Abby Robinson Transgender What it is? Effects of being Transgender: Famous People that told the world:

Balian Buschbaum:German pole vaulter and two time European Championship bronze medalist

Kelly van der Veer (b. 1980): Dutch reality television participant

Laura Jane Grace (b. 1980): lead singer and guitarist for punk rock band Against Me

Rose Venkatesan, (b. 1980): Famous Indian Tamil TV anchor The dictionary definition for someone who is transgender is: People who were assigned a sex, usually at birth and based on their genitals, but who feel that this is a false or incomplete description of themselves."

Statistics about Transgender people: Many people have been bullied and beaten because they have said that they are transgender.
Many people have lost friends and family members due to the transgender person "coming out of the closet." Personal Experience Honey West is 52 year old transgender woman who as a child always played with her sisters barbie dolls, and always stole her tutu's. West came out in high school but it didn't take her till she was 42 to finally accept the fact she was a transgender. When no one accepted her she "stuffed" her feelings by eating her sadness away. West went from a slim boys section to a a husky the next summer. This map shows how many people are picking and choosing how they run their business in terms of gender discrimination. As you can see, the results are pretty tragic. Statistics: There is an estimated 2-5% of the population is transgender.
According to recent studies in the Netherlands: there are 1 in every 12,000 males that undergo sex-reassignments and about 1 in every 34,000 change to males.
There are 110,041, 592 people protected by the Non-Discrimination Laws. Discrimination A bridal shop in the city refused to allow a transgender woman try on wedding dresses. "It might happen to some other transgender that might come to the store and she will hurt the same," It so embarrassed me and my husband." The owner of the shop thought she was a man, and was nervous other clients in the store were feeling uncomfortable. When the owner confronted her, and said "Sorry we don't allow men to try on dresses." Singh replied with "I'm not a man, I'm a transgender." Before & After
Female to Male Before & After
Male to Female Before & After
Male to Female "Transgender is an umbrella term for persons whose gender identity, gender expression, or behavior does not conform to that typically associated with the sex to which they were assigned at birth. Gender identity refers to a person’s internal sense of being male, female, or something else; gender expression refers to the way a person communicates gender identity to others through behavior, clothing, hairstyles, voice, or body characteristics. “Trans” is sometimes used as shorthand for “transgender.” While transgender is generally a good term to use, not everyone whose appearance or behavior is gender-nonconforming will identify as a transgender person. The ways that transgender people are talked about in popular culture, academia, and science are constantly changing, particularly as individuals’ awareness, knowledge, and openness about transgender people and their experiences grow." Guess which ones used to be guys. Trick Question they were all once a male. Luna
