Being transgender is more about gender identity than sexual orientation. (Of course this isn’t applicable to all transgender people, but it’s a misconception that transgender people only become transgender because they are attracted to their same gender.)
Finding pis like this are critical in helping people move past the stigma of being transgendered. Being able to see the statistics on suicide, as well as numbers and explanations of just what transgendered is, is needed to move to a place where being transgendered is understood and accepted by society.
I disagree with the term Transgender being used as an Umbrella term to describe all gender variations.
This article is written by a transgendered person and gives facts, information and statistics for transgendered people. Transgender means that someone is born into a body that they feel they don't belong in. Sexually they are born with the wrong "parts" and don't fit the gender characteristics. In this article it gives descriptions for different types of trans people, and different gender diversities.
