Detailed list of famous transgendered people, listed alphabetically, with photos. Who are some famous transgender people? You can find famous intersex, non-binary, and trans celebrities on this list whether they be transgender actresses, actors, writers, photographers, or more. There are actually many more famous people who have undergone gender reassignment than one would expect, including of course the child of Sonny & Cher, Chaz Bono (the former Chastity Bono, who was assigned female at birth and transitioned to male.) There are even transgendered movie directors, like one of the co-directors of the Matrix, Lana Wachowski. These transgender celebrities have been brave enough undergo extraordinary transformations, even while living in the public eye.

This list includes both transgender men who were assigned female at birth, and transgender women who were assigned male at birth, as well as a few intersex or non-binary celebrities. All of these folks are talented and accomplished, and many of them are pretty sexy, too!
