11 Well Known Celebrities You Didn't Know Underwent Gender Transformation

By KK Angus, 13 May 2018


Several celebrities have made headlines for getting a gender change surgery. What is a gender reassignment surgery? It’s basically when you change your gender altogether. It involves a complicated physical transformation which can be a long and demanding process. Not to mention the mental and emotional toll it takes on the recipient. Hollywood stars undergoing gender reassignment have it harder as they have to be honest and upfront about the process for the fans and media.

Remember when Bruce Jenner decided to transform into a woman? The thousands of questions she had to answer and explanations she had to make to her family and of course the media. The process which led her to become Caitlyn Jenner was hardly simple, but she decided not to hide behind the curtains and remained upfront about the entire transition. Let’s have a look at some of the other celebs who underwent gender change.

1Conchita Wurst is an icon


Conchita stormed through showbiz and with all the right reasons. Conchita's stint in Eurovision attracted some serious controversy, but people also saw her inclusion as a sign of progress. Conchita’s song Rise Like A Phoenix ushered her in as the one of most influential LGBT names in showbiz. The 29-year-old Conchita is currently one of the most successful names in the industry, both in Europe and US.
