transsexual:Or: transexual / TS :
1. A person anatomically of one sex who strongly believes he/she belongs to the other sex , one whose primary sexual identification (or psychosexuality) differs from his/her physiological sex . Researchers believe that true transsexuals possess the brain of one sex trapped in the body of the opposite-sex . Such a person wishes to live or already lives in the opposite gender role and may request medical intervention (hormonal and/or surgical treatment) in order to achieve the right body. Thus a transsexual has little or no trouble adapting to sex-reassignment surgery. Not all transsexuals undergo sex (or gender) reassignment surgery (SRS or GRS) and transsexualism has nothing to do with sexual-preference .

Drag queens Noxema/Zima Jackson/Auntie Noxy (Wesley Snipes) and Chichi Rodriquez (John Leguizamo) in To Wong Foo. Thanks for Everything. Julie Newmar (1995): - Noxema: ''Darling, if you''re going to become a drag-queen , you''re gonna have to learn these things. '' - Chichi: ''What do you mean ''a drag queen''? I am a drag queen!'' - Noxema: ''Oh, child, no , no , no . You''re simply a boy in a dress. When a straight man puts a dress and gets his sexual kick he is a transvestite ; when a man is a woman trapped in a man''s body and has the little operation he is a transsexual ; (...) when a gay man has way too much fashion sense for one gender he is a drag-queen . (...) And when a light little Latin boy puts on a dress he is simply a boy in a dress.'' In the end , they agree to give Chichi the temporary title of ''drag princess .''
