A transgender is either a male with the body of a female (FtM), or, a female with the body of a male MtF). This means their gender is not determined by their genatalia. (Even though it's common to think that is the case, it never is.) A transgender has NOT undergone a gender change operation. Transgenders who do undergo a gender change operation will then become transsexuals. A transperson should always be referred to by their correct pronouns. In other words, do not call them by their biological gender, but rather what they identify as. A FtM should be called he/him/his, and a MtF should be called she/her/hers. Some transpeople have gender dysphoria. This means that they are extremely uncomfortable in their own skin. Some transpeople, on the other hand, are NOT gender dysphoric. This does not mean they are not transgender. Also, transpeople come to terms with their gender at different rates and in different ways. It doesn't make any difference whether a transperson decided they are transgendered at 4 years old or 60. Some may think they are just gay, or go as genderfluid / androgynous because they don't want to face the problems that come with being transgendered. Transgenders can be gay, lesbian, straight, bisexual, pansexual, asexual, or any other sexuality. Their sexuality is completely seperate from their gender.
Wyatt: I'm a MtF transgender.
Gage: Wow, really? My brother is FtM. We should all get together sometime.

An umbrella term that includes transexuals, transvestites, intersexed people, and just about anybody else who doesn't conform to the traditional model of sex/gender. "Transgender" is the most general, inclusive term.
It used to be called the gay community. Now we say the GLBT (gay, lesbian, bi, and transgendered) community.
