That is commendable especially since being transgender is a medical condition that needs to be acknowledged and recognized, as such, by society and its secular and religious institutions.It is also incumbent on the rest of the medical and scientific community to educate the general public about this previously little known condition to mitigate the bigotry and discrimination many transgender people are subjected too by ignorant insensitive people.
