The Most Beautiful Transgender People in Hollywood
Though beauty is skin deep — not all beauties are born feeling comfortable in their own skin. According to studies, about 0.3 percent of US adults (approximately 700,000 people) identify as transgender. And in February 2013, Facebook did a pretty rad thing by adding 50 customised gender identification options, which include categories like "gender fluid," "genderqueer," and "cisgender."
As transitioning to be transgender becomes more and more mainstream, we here at POPSUGAR Beauty continue to feel envious of how gorgeous and brave these individuals are — especially the ones who do it in the public eye. Thankfully shows like Amazon's Transparent and Netflix's Orange Is the New Black give us onscreen characters to relate to. Even Glee's Coach Beiste announced she was undergoing procedures to become a man. And there are understanding parents, such as the Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, who support their 8-year-old daughter Shiloh's choice to wear suits on the red carpet and go by the name John. Still, Bruce Jenner faces daily public exploits of "is he?" or "isn't he?" becoming a woman. And if the Kardashian patriarch is undergoing hormones and procedures to look more like his famous female relatives, shouldn't we give him a bit of privacy instead of Photoshopping his face with lipstick?
Thus, we now divert your attention with this inspiring list of trans entertainers. We hope they encourage you to feel more confident, glamorous, and true to yourself.
