I voted three to five, but that's probably incorrect. I believe that I may know more than five, though I'm unsure. It's not really my business to know; only around four or so have told me that they were trans- identified.

I have a few transgender friends who take part in my school's Pride alliance organization.

My bio-dad is MtF, and recently I've done some self-discovery in realizing that I'm genderqueer (though recently I've been wondering more and more the extent of my masculinity and what it really means).

I know 4-5 and they are the sweetest people ever. There all friends I met on the internet though, no trans* people at my school.

Not counting people I met at GLBTQ related events, I know five that I've met face-to-face. Three through my church and two at school. I know dozens online, though not well.

I have quite a few Trans friends (most of them I came out to after they came out to me) and we're all glad to support one another.

I used to be told that FTM transgenders were rarer, but I think it's more that we're less open about it. A lot of us, if we can't pass, we hold off on trying until we can, at least from those that I know.

I know oodles! I love my trans men. I only am lucky enough to know one trans woman, though.

Nice topic. I know tons of trans people because I'm involved in my campus' LGBTQ stuff. I think I would probably be pretty transphobic if I hadn't met my first trans friend at age 13.

I wish I "knew" any TG people. I "know" some TG people socially online, but none offline.

I've attended meetings in both London and Copenhagen, so I'm lucky enough to have met tonnes of lovely trans* people in all shapes and sizes. I attend the meetings in Copenhagen more frequently though, being from Denmark and all.

I know lots, including myself and my lover. I personally think transphobia has more to do with upbringing/parents than it does actually being around trans people in general.

I don't know any. A friend's ex girlfriend had talked about getting gender reassignment surgery, but she never went through with it. But I don't know her all that well to begin with.

myself and many others. i think for some reason trans* people attract other trans* people, seems i've met more since coming out than i even knew there'd be around where i live. and yeah, i think transphobia has a lot to do with not being exposed to trans* people and basing views on false stereotypes

My girlfriend identifies with both genders, so I would say a few, counting some of her friends.

Once you're out of the closet, they come out of the woodwork.

It took one FTM friend to help me realize who I was, and now I know at least three more lovely transgender people.
