UK Museum Reclassifies Roman Emperor Elagabalus as Trans Woman

North Hertfordshire Museum in UK will now refer to the Roman Emperor Elagabalus using female pronouns after concluding the historical figure was a trans woman. This decision was made after classical texts claimed Elagabalus once stated, 'call me not Lord, for I am a Lady'. The museum consulted with LGBTQ+ charity Stonewall to ensure its display is inclusive. [Source](https://www.instagram.com/p/Cz8eOF2tRET/?igshid=ZWI2YzEzYmMxYg==)
