12 Celebrities Who Underwent Gender Transformations

I had the biggest crush on #9 before the transition.

Bruce Jenner was your ultimate manly man. He was tough, active, and athletic. But in 2015, he announced that he’s going to transition into a woman called Caitlyn Jenner. Her revelation then opened so many discussions about the LGBTQ community.

Although Caitlyn Jenner is arguably the biggest name in the transgender community right now, she’s far from being alone. In fact, there are also many other athletes, models, actresses, and directors who also transitioned and they’re definitely people you already know. Here are 12 celebrities who underwent gender transformations.
