Period during which psycho-social and bodily transformations are most marked, in a person who has undertaken the change of their social role (for example, to live "as a woman") and/or modify their physical appearance (for example by waxing, taking hormones, or genital surgery).
For transgender people, most of a transition consists of working on oneself to free oneself from any social role arbitrarily assigned according to their genitalia and which stifles individual freedoms."
The transition occurs at three levels: social, medical, and legal. You can choose to take care of only one level, or two, or all three, or none. Everyone experiences their transition as they wish. The journeys of trans* people are all different, and transition is not an obligation.
