Gender Transition

The process of undergoing social, legal, and/or medical transition from one’s birth-assigned gender to another. For instance, a person assigned male at birth might possess a female gender identity, therefore changing her birth name and pronouns and the gender marker on her government-issued documents. Transitioning is a personal process unique to the individual—a journey in which one makes decisions to become more like their true self. 

When she was twenty, Camila came out as transgender and began transitioning by using feminine pronouns and legally changing her name.
