1) a posi noun for a trans person, replacing the pejorative noun tranny.

useful linguistically where the more common adjective trans won't flow in your sentence. plural: "trans," bc none of this was confusing enough already. usually only used to refer to oneself, preceded by a single adjective, as a caption for a selfie (ie. "glam tran"); if used to refer to another person, it could be interpreted as a slur, which would defeat the purpose of making up new words to distance ourselves from ru paul.

2) a common Việt family name (Trần). 11% of all vietnamese trans are also Trầns.

An abbreviation of the word transgender (also transsexual/transexual). "Trans" is shorter and more informal than "transgender."

A trans person is someone whose gender is not that which they were assigned at birth.
