Look…These Are Some Of The More Popular Transgender People In The World
Being transgender today is not a big issue anymore, but that was not the case a few years earlier. Coming out of the closets has always been a personal, familial, and community struggle. The transgender person usually finds it hard to express themselves and reveal their gender identity to their parents for fear of rejection. Even if the family accepts them, there is still the more significant issue of community acceptance. Many believe that society, in general, tolerates members of the LGBT community, but they are not accepting of them.
Meanwhile, the entertainment and modeling industry has always been a sort of haven for transgender people. It is in this space where they could make the needed investments and express their creativity. It is not without problems, of course, but this world has been more accepting. A quick look at the list below reveals that most of them have found their success in the industry. A good number have also excelled in other fields, like writing, teaching, and even business! So don’t fall into the trap of thinking that transgender people are only confined to the entertainment industry!

Chastity Sun Bono was his birth name but eventually turned into Chaz Salvatore Bono. He was born in Los Angeles, California, on March 4, 1969. After he came out, he then worked for The Advocate as a writer. Also, for a person with a significantly large platform, he did impressive things for the group. He was a Human Rights Campaign’s spokesperson and became GLAAD or Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation’s Entertainment Media Director. As an actor, he has acting credit with numerous television series such as American Horror Story: Cult, The Bold and the Beautiful, and Where the Bears Are.
