Unnamed Beautiful Lady in Persona 3

Beautiful Lady is an unnamed NPC during the Persona 3 beach trip who is revealed to be a trans woman after hitting on the boys on the team. Stereotypical tropes dealing with trans shock at a gender reveal are exhibited during this scene (found here from 30:44-32:39), in addition to queer/trans people appearing predatory, which can be found in scenes with Persona 5‘s two gay NPCs as well.
