Transgender people are generally born into one gender and yet feel as though they belong or identify as being the other gender.  Many people, including Dr.Rohr, undergo extensive surgery to correct their gender and can also legally change their names. The term transgender does not relate to a person’s sexual identity, which mat vary.

Transgender issues has recently received national attention as the federal government directed schools to allow students to use the bathroom they believe matches their identity. There are an increasing number of people, like Dr. Rohr, who are publicly communicating their experiences to further educate the public and provide support for others coming out.
