I found the above linked article late last year. I figured that it would be fitting for Pride Month, so I waited until now to post it.
According to the article, all transgender means is that a person’s sense of gender identity doesn’t conform to their birth sex.
Many of the people mentioned in the article had surgery to transform from one sex to the other, but many didn’t. I had only heard of a few of these people, but all of them have interesting stories.
