Tianjin Transsexual Gets New Chinese ID Card as a Woman

From Xinhua:

Ying Ning, the 33-year-old Tianjin man who became a woman through transsexual operations, got a new Chinese ID card as a female on Tuesday.

“I am so excited to receive it after a month-long wait,” said Ying, who is believed to be the first transsexual person in China to go public with the media under a new gender.

“The ID card has a special meaning for me, that I have been accepted by society. It will be the beginning of my new life,” Ying told a reporter with the Tianjin-based newspaper Daily News.
