Camille Barré (1959 - ) activist.

Gilles Barré was born in Paris. After a period of androgyny and 12 years with a wife, Gilles transitioned into Camille, surgically in 1998, and legally in 1999.

Camille became famous after a media circus in 2005 about her desire to marry Monica Leon, an Argentinean non-op who was legally male. Their application was rejected by the courts, but Camille became well known on national television.

She is co-leader of the GLBT collective in the French Communist Party and has helped the Party to evolve re trans issues. In 2007 she was the Communist candidate in the 7th district of Hauts-de-Seine.
