Gender Transition In 2022, Lorestani publicly announced his gender transition on July 12, 2022, choosing the name Maziar. This revelation generated significant reactions on Iranian social media, with some focusing on his gender transition while others, including transgender rights activists, emphasized the importance of using the term "gender transition." Lorestani shared that his previous identity was that of a man for 56 years and expressed hope for a positive outcome from his transition.
