1503 BC Egypt Queen Hatshepsut the second female to ever rule (the first was Sobekneferu who was disfavored by many) Hatshepsut learned from the ruler before her and donned male clothing and wore a fake beard to show kingsmanship
Many stories of Greek Mythology included
transfolk or beings of both genders. Cupid was described as a dual god/godess of love and is originally portrayed as intersex. Cupid was the child of Hermes and Aphrodite hense the term "hermaphrodite."
Amazons a group warriors who had a constant conflict with the Greeks were thought to b trans they were called Androgynae meaning "who combine the two sexes."
in humans and other animals, is a variation in sex characteristics including chromosomes, gonads, and/or genitals that do not allow an individual to be distinctly identified as male or female.
Accroding to Trevor Stokes of NBC research showa that "Clownfish have an unusual home life: Up to six fish form a group around a single sea anemone. The largest of the group is a female, the second largest is a male, and the rest are immature fish that do not have a gender. (Once they do, they will be able to change their gender as mating pairs die out.)"

According to Alison J Walkley from Dickinson COllege The double-banded anemonefish, a native of the Red Sea, is a species that largely consists of males. When two males meet, one will transform into a female and the mating process begins. Thereafter, the new couple will remain monogamous to one another for the rest of their lives. Should one member of the pair die, the survivor is able to find another mate, possibly by changing its sex organs again.

Modern Day
In years past. Trans people had no way of transitoning to the complete gender they desired. But now in Modern day thanks to our ever changing science and technology Trans folk are now able to transition fully by taking hormones and having gender reassigment surgery.
When it comes Transgendered people there are two common terms used MTF (male to female) and FTM (Female to male) Some but not all transgendered persons choose to have surgery most trans people begin their transition by taking hormones. One may not start hormones without
a letter from a mental health professional recommending hormones.
Estrogen Effects
Transwomen (mtf)
Will cause- Emotional changes – estrogen will likely make you more emotional and more likely to cry, even over small things
- Breast development – this varies greatly between people. Breast development depends mostly on your family history and how young you are when you begin taking estrogen (usually the younger you are, the more growth you will see)
- Softened skin
- Body fat redistribution (fat moves from the belly area to the hips and butt)
- Facial fat redistribution
- Body hair loss – over time, estrogen can cause hair loss on legs, arms, and chest
- Decreased sex drive

Testosterone Effects
Transman (ftm)
- Thickening of the vocal chords and deepening of the voice
- Facial hair growth (mustache and/or beard growth)
- Increased body hair growth (notably on arms, legs, chest, belly, and back)
- Increased body musculature
- Enlargement of the clitoris
- Cessation of menses (monthly periods)
- Potential hair loss at the temples and crown of the head, resulting in a more masculine hairline; possibly male-pattern baldness
- Migration of body fat to a more masculine pattern (i.e., fat deposits shifting from hips, thighs and buttocks to the abdomen area)
- Increased activity of the skin's oil glands (i.e., skin becomes more oily, which may result in acne)
- Skin may become rougher in feeling and/or appearance.
- Increase in sex drive
