A transgender is a person who has a gender identity that does not match his assigned sex. i.e. a male assuming a female indentity.
A transexual usually refers to a person who has undergone a sex change operation.
A transvestite usually refers to "cross dressers". They generally do not have the desire to permanently change their sex.

Pulupot opens this summer of 2010.
