If no, are there any other loop holes or anything I can say to the public if I become famous so that most or at least more them half of the public doesn't know I am MTF and so that I can pass.
Relax. Court cases are public, but your fear of being filed are baseless.
Good luck on becoming famous.
The above is general legal and business analysis. It is not "legal advice" but analysis, and different lawyers may analyse this matter differently, especially if there are additional facts not reflected in the question. I am not your attorney until retained by a written retainer agreement signed by both of us. I am only licensed in California.

closing the courtroom would take a motion and special circumstances. People change names all the time; people are changing names because of gender issues. When was the last time you saw it in the paper??
It is probably like a Name Change Petition. While it is technically public information, the odds of someone knowing where and what they are looking for are small.
I will change this to Probate since they often deal with name changes... and therefore probably gender changes.
Good luck and i hope you do become [email protected]
In Orange County, the name changes are handled by the clerk. I presume it is similar in Los Angeles County.
The procedure is: Sit down at the table with the clerk, they make sure all the documents and notices have been given, including publication, and then you get the order.
Everyone else is more concerned about whether or not they have their paperwork right than what is happening with the earlier matters. Perhaps the first person gets a little more looking at so the rest of the people know the procedure.
You may have to publish in a "local newspaper of general circulation." In Los Angeles there are a number that qualify AND are somewhat obscure. The Daily Business Journal, at least one in Spanish, and one from Santa Monica aimed at the British community.
When the person gives you money, the person has an attorney and the attorney has a client, but not until then. Inspired by words of Abraham Lincoln
