As "James", Morris married and had children, but felt female and eventually became Jan Morris. Transgender people are not accepted in every society.
They suffer discrimination , violence, and even murder. Transgender people have fought for and have gained many rights and protections in some societies.
In many places the fight for transgender rights is associated with the fight for gay and bisexual rights. Together these groups are sometimes described by the acronym LGBT for lesbian , gay , bisexual , and transgender.
However, some transgender people do not want to be a part of the LGB lesbian, gay and bisexual community, as they may see themselves as heterosexual and not feel like they belong with gay or queer people, and some LGB people do not want to be a part of the transgender community, as they may be transphobic , which means that they may have a fear or dislike of transgender people, or they may not want heterosexuals to see sexuality and gender identity as the same thing.
However, gay and transgender people often have some of the same problems in society, so many gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people try to work together to solve all of their problems.
Many transgender people have mental health problems. Some studies show that Transgender people have better mental health and commit suicide less often when they live as their preferred gender.
Transgender people who want to take medicine and have surgery to change their bodies face several problems. In order to change their bodies, they must have doctors who will help them make the changes.
Sometimes, they can not do this because doctors will not help them. They may also not be able to do this because even if a doctor would treat them, they may not be able to afford the medicine or surgery.
But the Declaration of Montreal says that such medical care should be given to them by public health insurance. Some people believe that being transgender is a disease , sometimes called gender identity disorder.
Many transgender people do not like being labelled as having a disease, which they feel causes them to be seen and treated badly. Others believe that they should be labelled this way, because some governments and insurance companies will not pay for transgender people's medical treatment unless it is considered a disease.
Also, In places that do not have laws that protect transgender people from discrimination, they may only be protected under laws that protect people with diseases or disabilities.
Doctors do not agree on one way of viewing being transgender. Some doctors view it as a birth defect that can easily be fixed, others may not even think that being transgender is a medical condition.
Transgender people have problems with laws and regulations about sex. To be seen and treated as the sex they wish, transgender people usually have to change their first name.
Though some names are unisex, which means that they can be used by both men and women, transgender people with a unisex name may still want to change their name, though this is not always the case.
They also may want to change their identity documents to say the correct sex. For example, a transgender woman may wish to change her birth certificate or driving license to say her new female name and to say that she is a female.
These changes can protect transgender people from discrimination. For example, transgender people often have a hard time traveling because they may look like one sex but have another on their papers.
These changes can also be needed for transgender people to be allowed to marry their spouses in places where it is illegal for people of the same sex to marry.
These changes can even protect transgender people from a wide variety of violence. Some transgender people are only recognized when their documents reveal them.
In many places, it is hard or not possible for transgender people to change their legal sex, with or without having genital surgery , which is required in many places.
This is against the Yogyakarta Principles. This act allows people to have their change of sex officially recognized without surgery.
Once changed, they legally become their new sex. From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article has many issues.

A common symbol for the transgender community is the Transgender Pride Flag , which was designed by the American transgender woman Monica Helms in , and was first shown at a pride parade in Phoenix, Arizona in The flag consists of five horizontal stripes: light blue, pink, white, pink, and light blue.
Helms describes the meaning of the flag as follows:. The light blue is the traditional color for baby boys, pink is for girls, and the white in the middle is for "those who are transitioning, those who feel they have a neutral gender or no gender", and those who are intersex.
The pattern is such that "no matter which way you fly it, it will always be correct. This symbolizes us trying to find correctness in our own lives.

Transgender: An umbrella term that describes people whose gender identity or gender expression differs from expectations associated with the sex assigned to them at birth.
The term transgender was coined by John Oliven and popularized by various transgender people who pioneered the concept and practice of transgenderism.
It is sometimes said that Virginia Prince popularized the term, but history shows that many transgender people advocated the use of this term much more than Prince.
As aforementioned, many transsexual individuals prefer the term transgender, or simply trans, as it is more inclusive and carries fewer stigmas.
There are some transsexual individuals [,] however, who reject the term transgender; these individuals view transsexualism as a treatable congenital condition.

There are a number of other labels individuals who are transgender use to describe their gender. This can be confusing at first, particularly if you or someone you know think they might be transgender.
For example, a person who was assigned a female sex at birth and has a male sense of self could be categorized as transgender. A person who was assigned male at birth and has a female sense of self could also be categorized as transgender.
Those who are transgender can identify as a woman, man, a combination of both, or something else altogether.
The word transgender can also be used in conjunction with other labels to indicate the gender or sex someone knows themselves to be.
For example, someone can identify as a transgender man, a transgender woman, or a transgender nonbinary person. As a rule of thumb, the term transgender provides information about the extent to which someone identifies with the sex they were assigned at birth.
The following word often communicates important information about the way someone experiences and understands gender, as well as how they might want to be referred to.
Some transgender people change their appearance, body, name, or legal gender marker to convey and affirm their internal experience of gender.
Either way is OK. Similar to the word transgender, the meaning of the word transsexual can vary from person to person, culture to culture, and across history.
It should never be used to refer to the entire transgender community. Further, some transgender people find the word transsexual to be offensive and stigmatizing.
This is because of its history and roots in the professional fields of medicine and psychology, which used this term to incorrectly label all transgender people as mentally ill or sexually deviant.
Transgender tends to be more inclusive and affirming than transsexual because it includes the experience of those who pursue medical changes to affirm gender as well as those who do not.
The decision to pursue physical and medical changes can vary from transgender person to transgender person.
The term transsexual can be contentious because it was historically used to categorize transgender people as mentally ill.
It often served as justification for discrimination, harassment, and mistreatment. Others feel a medical or mental health diagnosis and requirement for intervention only perpetuate the inaccurate assumption that transgender people have an inherent medical or mental health problem.
In the past, transsexualism, transvestism, and gender identity disorder were the labels used to medically and psychologically categorize someone who has a gender or appearance that differs from the sex assigned at birth.
Many who use the word transsexual to describe their gender see a medical diagnosis, medical transition using hormones, and gender confirmation surgery as important parts of their experience.
They use the term to help communicate that viewpoint. Remember that the negative connotations of the word transsexual vary from person to person and culture to culture.
If a particular culture, community, or individual experiences and uses the word transsexual as a respectful and authentic descriptor, then it can be used in that particular situation or context.
These terms are also commonly associated with instances of discrimination, harassment, mistreatment, and misunderstanding.
The word someone uses to describe their gender can be a private and sensitive topic. If you want to learn more about gender labels such as transgender and transsexual, check out these articles:.
