According to my interpretation of the scientific evidence (see PowerPoint slides), Chaz is a transman since he has a male (androcentric) identity). But since he is still gynephilic (attracted to women), Chaz is actually heterosexual. One must have a female identity to be a lesbian. Now that Chaz has come to grips with his “felt sexual identity,” the lesbian designation is automatically negated. The only change that’s happening is that Chaz’s gynemorphic body is now being altered to be more andromorphic.
