But being a woman is not a subclass of man.

It doesn't include it either.

The ordinary meaning of those words should suffice.

There are plenty of LGBT support groups who will welcome those who classify (and those yet to classify) themselves as transvestites and cross dressers.

LGBT is a well known acronym. Does it need the extra letters?

I think you'll be okay wearing a dress to the interview hairy, as long as you can demonstrate that you recognise issues that come with being a man in a dress.
It's not helpful to just say, "this floaty dress is lovely and airy".
