The Transman is female by birth and has gender identity as that of a male.
Here is a list of the most famous showbiz personalities who fall under this category.
Jake Zyrus is one good example. Formerly known as Charice Pempengco, he rose from poverty by joining countless singing competitions until she got her big break when her videos went viral and gained international recognition.
He made history as the first transman to appear on the cover of Mega Man Magazine in 2016. Coming out as a transgender man or transman in 2016, the singer announced in 2017 that he will now go by the name Jake Zyrus.
Jake also had surgery on his chest region, which is a gender-affirming procedure for transgender men to create a masculine chest.
Vlogger Jesi Corcuera has now over 200K followers on his YouTube account that’s filled with regular Vlogs about his daily life exploring the Philippines, while his ‘Transman Diaries’ is a special vlog of his. His popularity started on the fourth season of ‘StarStruck,’ along with Kris Bernal and Aljur Abrenica.
After disappearing from showbiz, Jesi resurfaced as a transgender man when he joined a reality show. Like Jake Zyrus, he also underwent surgery which he shared on his Youtube channel.
Ice Seguerra, best known as child star Aiza Segurra after joining ‘Eat Bulaga’s Little Miss Philippines,’ grew up to eventually become Ice. He has released various songs in his music career, such as the smash hit ‘Pagdating Ng Panahon.’
Now, he is happily married to wife Liza Diño. The two are now planning to have another child via in-vitro fertilization.
Also beginning stages of his transition as a transman is Sky Teotico, who joined and became a runner-up in the talent competition for lesbians, ‘That’s My Tomboy.’ Sky has starred as Amboy in the Kapuso sitcom ‘Ismol Family’ and does live shows in nightclubs and pride events as a drag king.

10/9/2018 I can live a simple life. I can just survive. I can be happy. But we are living in this world, to experience the world. We have our minds to take us everywhere. And even the time we think we can be anywhere, is a question, do we really belong somewhere? I say, YES. Now, I am taking myself to that one place I always feel I really belong, that place, that I cannot be happy, but the happiest. #ReachTheGoal

Couple Ice Seguerra and Liza Diño have started in-vitro fertilization in order to have their own baby.
In an Instagram post on Thursday, January 24, Diño said that Seguerra, who came out as transgender five years ago, underwent egg retrieval as a part of the first phase of the process.
Fortunately, they were able to harvest three eggs from the singer.
“Ice, still groggy from the anesthesia after the egg retrieval process, finally opens his eyes and the first thing he says is ‘I’m hungry!’ Yup, he’s awake na nga!
“Successful procedure! Thank you, Lord. They were able to harvest three good eggs from Ice.”
She has also said that she will serve as a surrogate to the baby.
In 2016, Seguerra said that they had to postpone their plan of going through in-vitro fertilization due to the expensive procedures.
“Baka hindi matuloy this year ang IVF namin ni Liza dahil bukod sa hindi kami makaalis nang matagal, medyo mahal ang magagastos at hindi kami handang maglabas ng ganoong kalaking halaga.”
They have tied the knot in a private ceremony in California last December 2014.
