What is Transgender?

"Transgender" can be defined as the  umbrella term used to describes people whose gender identity or expression does not match the sex they were assigned at birth. For example, a transgender person may identify as a woman despite having been born with male Instruments. On the 18th of June 2018, the World Health Organization issued a new catalogue covering 55,000 diseases, injuries and causes of death, in which it discreetly re-categorised transgenderism. The new catalogue, which still needs to be approved by UN member countries, so-called “gender incongruence” is now listed under “conditions related to sexual health”, instead of “mental, behavioral  and neuro developmental disorders”.

However,  scientists and health institutions  in most countries still classify it as a mental illness a  reason an insurance company in Israel  refused to finance a mastectomy for a transgender man, insisting that being transgender is a mental illness.

Although experts estimate that about one percent of the world’s population are transgender they are almost invisible on the African continent  due to strong cultural values. The few which come out as transgender are often deserted by their friends and families forcing many with such thoughts  to hide their identity and live on the margins of their communities or risk being ostracized due to strong religious, cultural and moral values which are held in high esteem across the continent. South Africa, Angola and Botswana are the only African countries with laws explicitly allowing official documents to be changed to reflect a person’s desired identity, although medical evidence of transition is usually required. Her is Africa's top ten transgender celebrities:

Audrey Mbugua
# 1 Audrey Mbugua ­- is Kenya’s most famous transgender “woman”. Born a male in Kenya and given the name Andrew he said he felt trapped in the wrong body and started dressing in women’s clothes while at university, attracting ridicule and rejection. After Mbugua’s 2008 suicide attempt, doctors diagnosed him with gender identity disorder and arranged for surgery to change his sex but Kenya’s minister of medical services cancelled the operation at the last minute. Kenyan authorities say medical proof of transition – a sex change – is required to change the gender mark on Mbugua’s passport and identity card. But sex change surgery is virtually impossible to get in Kenya.

Sandile Ndelu
# 2 Sandile Ndelu- is a 22-year-old transgender woman and postgraduate law student at the University of Cape Town. he is originally from KwaZulu-Natal in a small town called Umkomaas. According to  Sandile, her family shies away from frank talk and confrontation.  Most times unwilling, or ignorant, about wanting to speak about things they may be worried about, or the things they may be thinking about.

Muzi Zuma
#3 Muzi Zuma- Born and raised in Sobantu, Muzi­ Zuma  is a transgender celeb  in the South African cosmetic industry and is listed among celebrated makeup artists in the country. According to the 25 year old “When I was still male-looking my career was blossoming; I worked on numerous editorials, catalogues and commercials. But since my development into my true self it’s been, and still is, rather a climb.”  Zuma is an architectural design graduate of the University of Johannesburg.

Ntobeka Mboya

#4 Ntobeka Mboya - describes”herself” as a bubbly troublemaker. According to him “If I don’t get a callback I just roll a joint and smoke,” he says with a laugh. Mboya says he has always known that he is transgender. “I hate having a joystick but I love having one inside me. It’s like a piece of meat I have no function for and this goes back to when I was about 12, when I realized there’s this thing hanging there and I had no desires of using it. At least not on girls.”

Elle Rose van der Burg
#5 Elle Rose van der Burg - is a 20 year old transgender model, activist and musician (under the artist name Baby Caramelle). he uses his platform to negotiate new conversations around how people  perceive gender roles; in the hopes of creating more inter sectional spaces and discussions.

Angela Coleman
#6 Angela Coleman (Madina Broni) -     This Ghanaian previously known as Prince Coleman  now prefers to be called  Angela Coleman. This first Ghanaian transgender said he was always mocked for having the features of a woman. he stated that he  always felt trapped in a man’s body and decided to change his sex when he had the opportunity to travel to Spain and that his family accepts who “she”  has become now.

Malak al-Kashef
#7 Malak al-Kashef ­- Born male, Malak al-Kashef recently had sex reassignment surgery and  is Egypt’s first   transgender woman. However, he has not yet managed to have his gender identity officially recognized and is therefore registered as male in official documents. he began documenting his transition on facebook and publicly discussed his  suicide attempt in 2018 and the continuous harassment he faced in public spaces. he was recently arrested and Egyptian authorities and placed in a men's prison.

Miss saHHara transgender

#8 Miss saHHara – After being incarcerated for ‘looking too feminine’ he  realized that Nigeria was not the best place for him and  moved to the United Kingdom in 2004. In the UK, Miss saHHara was able to learn more about herself and find help to start his transition to feminine gender. This graduate of the London Metropolitan University came out as transgender during the Miss International Queen  pageant in 2011 where he was the second runner making "her" the first Nigerian transgender woman to publicly come out as trans.

Stephanie Rose
#9 Stephanie Rose  - was formerly known as Dapo  Adaralegbe before undergoing surgery to change his sex to become a woman. Both of his parents worked at the Obafemi Awolowo University, so he attended the university staff school and then the OAU itself. However, during his college years, Dapo said he realized that he was not like the others. he started wearing make-up and feminine clothes, which alienated his peers and made him the victim of bullying. "she"  is renowned for "her" blasphemous rants on social media


Mala began
#10 Mala began - is a Moroccan transgender  formerly known as Hamza. He was kicked out of his  home after revealing to his family that he identifies as a woman, rather than the sex he was born. he recalls realizing his transgender identity in the Huffington Post saying, “When I was 15 and first found a group of gay and transgender friends, I was swept away by a deep feeling of joy, and was finally able to accept myself for who I was.  Hamza is listed among top transgender celebrities nobody knew about.

According to Wikipedia Bobrisky is not described as a trangender but a cross dresser known for his social media skill most notably the use of Snapchat, a social media application. Born male and formally known as Okuneye Idris Olarenwaju, Bobrisky is perhaps the most popular cross dresser in Africa and displays virtually all the attributes of a transgender and  recently  describes himself as a goddess with a soft heart and Nigeria's first trans according to some media reports.
