Sometimes the gender you identify with isn’t the gender you were born with. Sometimes you’re filthy rich. The ten people listed below find themselves in both of those categories.
Thanks to television shows like Transparent and Orange Is The New Black, films like Dallas Buyers Club, and music like Against Me!’s album Transgender Dysphoria Blues, society is becoming more and more informed on the important topics of transgender identities and issues. This awareness allows for a lot of people to step out of the darkness and become the person they always wanted to be.
Some of the transgender people that made this list have only begun the change to the opposite sex, others haven’t undergone any surgery at all, and a few have completed the transformation. Rolling Stone called 2014 “The Biggest Year in Transgender History” and Time magazine featured transgender actress Laverne Cox on their cover with the headline “The Transgender Tipping Point”.
Federal policy on transgender issues has been changed to ban discrimination and offer more medical help for those who want to undergo gender orientation treatments. In the White House and in Hollywood, the topic of transexuality is becoming increasingly celebrated instead of being shamed, which lets these talented individuals do their thing. There’s no denying that these 10 richest transgender people in the world are making waves.
