Jiangxi is traditionally renowned for its beautiful women. Somehow this sexist folklore has survived to this day. But Shen Qingqing, 21, is determined to give it a new twist. The transsexual, who completed a series of operations a year ago, is now medically qualified as a woman. And judging from her modelling photos (pictured), she is as pretty as those beauties from her native province.
'I want to be Jiangxi's No1 transsexual beauty,' she said. 'It has been a dream come true.'
She has been posing as a model for artists and photographers, and somehow, her fame has spread far and wide. Now, a photo album collection has been put on the internet. Opinion is divided: some have expressed revulsion, but others have praised her beauty.
Stay tuned for her print edition, which is being planned.
