Kuwaiti Transsexual Asks Court To Change Legal Gender
In the first case of its kind in Kuwait, a transsexual has asked for a legal gender change to female.
The Qabas nespaper said the unnamed transsexual, 29, had submitted papers to court as proof that she had had a sex-change operation in Bangkok, changing gender from male to female. She now wants to be legally identified as female.
The newspaper said the court has yet to rule on the case, but quoted a lawyer as saying the request would probably be accepted if all the papers were in order.
