Transgender is someone who like all the other gay subgroups has psychological variance in terms of how masculine or feminine they are socially in relation to their sex. They have developed a form of depression known as "gender dysphoria" and attempt to alter their body to change into the opposite sex.

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), published by the American Psychiatric Association, lists gender dysphoria as a mental illness. The condition is also sometimes known as: gender identity disorder, gender incongruence or transgenderism. Contrary to the transgendered people raging on here it's not something that's "normal" and these people need therapy rather than surgery.
Jimmy thought he had been born as the wrong gender so he had a sex change and is now Transgender.

A term referring to when one's gender and sex are not always or ever equivalent. Often used as a referrant to the person themself.

This is a broad term that includes transexual (pre/non or post-op), non-gender, bi (tri & multi) gender, androgynes, etc.

The state of being transgendered may or may not have any bearing on sexual preferences.

Bob was born a male, but as a person is a woman.

Karen was born a female, but as a person has no gender.

John was born a male, but as a person switches gender.

and so on..

Transgender (adj.) – According to Google
Denoting or relating to a person whose self-identity does not conform unambiguously to conventional notions of male or female gender.

Plainer English
Referring to a person whose thought of themselves doesn’t line up with one accepted idea of being a man or woman.

As simple as I can get it
a person who thinks of themselves as a man or woman even though they have the opposite sex organs.
That man is transgender, because he identifies as a woman.
