Transgender persons are those who live full-time or part-time in the gender role of the opposite biologic sex (Lawrence et al., 1996). Transgender persons share the same health concerns as nontransgender persons; as members of a minority group characterized by complex identities and often by visibly gender-variant social presentations, transgender persons also have special health concerns related to the delivery of health services in a manner that recognizes and takes account of their identities and presentations (see Chapter 26).
