Ian Harvie is a living and breathing example that you can become successful no matter what. Harvey realized he was transgender at a very early age, although back then there was no such term yet. At 19 he came out as being queer, and at age 32 he revealed that he was transgender. He uses this fact in his stand-up shows, often referring to his s##uality during performances. Today Ian Harvie is a successful stand-up comedian who runs his own show.
