This site is the most comprehensive on the web devoted to trans history and biography. Well over 1400 persons worthy of note, both famous and obscure, are discussed in detail, and many more are mentioned in passing.
There is a detailed Index arranged by vocation, doctor, activist group etc. There is also a Place Index arranged by City etc. This is still evolving.
In addition to this most articles have one or more labels at the bottom. Click one to go to similar persons. There is a full list of labels at the bottom of the right-hand sidebar. There is also a search box at the top left. Enjoy exploring!

Numbers and HBS
Let us spell this out.
I am assuming that transsexuals are 1:500, a cautious ratio from the Conway-Olyslager study.
A transsexual is someone who has sexual affirmation surgery and does not regret it afterwards.
1:100,000 is 10 in a million.
1:500 is 2000 in a million.
Thus there are 200 transsexuals for every HBS if Goiar is right (although she gives no rational for her number).
HBS are only a fraction of 1% of transsexuals.
