16-Year-Old Becomes Spain’s Youngeset Post-Op Transgender Patient

With a judge’s permission — required for any minor looking to transition — an unidentified teen has become Spain’s youngest-ever transgender surgery patient. With a successful surgery completed three weeks ago, after two years of hormone therapy, the young biological man who, from age five felt like a girl, now has a woman’s body. Spain is among a select few countries, including Australia and the Netherlands, with laws that explicitly allows minors to have gender reassignment surgeries.
