By Out.com Editors
For the first time ever, the Forbes billionaires list this year includes an openly transgender billionaire: Pritzker. In August 2013 Pritzker came out as transgender, not long after granting $1.35 million to the research institute the Palm Center to study transgender service in the military. Granddaughter to the founder of the Hyatt hotel chain, Pritzker is a retired Army lieutenant colonel and CEO of private wealth management firm Tawani Enterprises in Chicago.
