List of transgendered people

A number of noted individuals are or were transgendered.

Transgender, for the purposes of this article, is an umbrella term that can include transsexuals, transvestic fetishists, cross-dressers, intersexuals, drag queens, drag kings and others. This article is not sorted by transgender behavior.

Please note that these people have been selected for this list because their fame or notoriety was in some way due or connected to their transgender behaviour.

Regarding historical persons, please also note that for individuals at least until the beginning of the 20th century, there were no names for transgender behaviour, and therefore we have no statemends that are a clear documentation for their reasons to behave the way they did; most of the time, we have no statements by themselves at all. All we can say is that by today's standards, these people would be considered transgendered.
