TRANS is a section for transgendered, transsexuals and transvestites. Human sexuality is not limited to being gay, bisexual, lesbian or straight. The Latin prefix trans- means "over", "beyond". Likewise all trans-something people, whether voluntarily or by virtue of circumstances, overstep the limitations of our traditional notions on gender roles and sexual identities.
For those that don't know the difference, transsexuals (transgendered) are people feeling that the sex of their souls does not match their biological gender and want to change that. Transvestites are merely men that enjoy wearing women's clothes. To add some confusion, it should be added that both can be gay or straight, thus giving rise to so-called transgays and translesbians.
Trans-people are bright and talented, they become renowned impersonators and travesti, they add colors and flavour to every show they partake in. Even the sternest homophobes cannot help admiring their artful performance. They bring joy and lightness into our being and we highly appreciate it!
