The Court of Final Appeal case of W v Registrar of Marriages made headlines in Hong Kong and around the world ("Transsexual granted right to wed", May 14).

Sally is a young Hong Kong Chinese woman. She is bright, attractive, likeable - and transsexual. Born with a male anatomy, she has been identifying as female for as long as she can remember. She is gender dysphoric - deeply unhappy about being regarded by others as male, and about having a male body. Puberty was a really difficult time for her.17 May 2013 - 3:17am 1 comment

A transsexual woman who twice lost her court bid for the right to marry her boyfriend took her battle to the Court of Final Appeal yesterday.
Lawyers for the woman, 37, who has had a government-subsidised sex-change operation, said that by not recognising her new gender, the government in effect denied her the right to marry anyone - man or woman.16 Apr 2013 - 4:38am
