Drag meant “clothes”, and was also theatre slang for a woman’s costume worn by a male actor. A queen is an effeminate gay man. Another term for drag queen, female impersonator, is still used though it is often regarded as inaccurate as many contemporary drag performers are not attempting to pass as women … Some members of the lesbian, gay, and bisexual community criticize drag queens and their participation in pride parades and other public events, believing that this projects a limited and harmful image of gay people and impedes a broader social acceptance. Others see this point of view as intolerant of the diversity and history of the gay community. Still others simply regard drag as traditional fun that need not be politically analyzed.”)

A trans man was assigned female at birth, but identifies as male. The label of transgender male is not interchangeable with that of transsexual male although the two are often combined or mistaken for the same thing. The difference is that while transgender males identify with the male gender identity, transsexual males may intend to undergo physical changes to align their body with their gender identity. A transgender male is someone whose gender identity is male, but who does not necessarily change himself physically. … The term “trans man” is used as a short form for either identity (transsexual man and transgender man). Trans men may identify as transsexual, as transgender, neither, or both. “Transgender man” is an umbrella term that may include anybody who was assigned the female sex at birth but identifies as male.)

The label of transgender woman is not interchangeable with that of transsexual woman, although the two are often combined or mistaken for the same thing. A transsexual woman is someone who was assigned male at birth but whose gender identity is that of a woman; transsexual women may undergo physical changes to align their body with their gender identity (known as transition). Transgender is an umbrella term that includes different types of gender variant people (including transsexual people) so transgender women could, for example, refer to either a woman who was assigned male at birth, identifies as a woman, but does not wish to undergo physical changes, or a transsexual woman. … Some trans women who feel that their gender transition is complete prefer to be called simply “women,” considering “trans woman” or “male-to-female transsexual” to be terms that should only be used for people who are not fully transitioned.)
