I would say that your answer is the best because it points out that it does not necessarily apply to someone who
has undergone, or begun to undergo, a sex change procedure. I had actually used "transexual," but I didn't know
if anyone else might be able to come up with something better. Thank you all for reassuring me and for your help.

programas dirigidos a las comunidades de Latinos homosexuales, bisexuales y transexuales


Explanation:
In recent years, in the English speaking community, it has become usual to use "gender" instead of "sex" (Please, avoid this in Spanish!!); hence, "transgendered" = "trans-sexed"= que ha cambiado, de sexo. Esto es diferente del travesti, que se viste como el sexo opuesto. ONLY LINGUIST KNOWLEDGE!
