2 Post-Op Trans Passengers Blocked From Entering Egypt Because Their New Looks Don’t Match Their Passports

Two transgender passengers returning to Cairo from Amman, Jordan, were refused entry into the country because their appearance — courtesy some fresh gender reassignment surgery — didn’t match their passports. “Ahmed,” who is MTF, and “Isra’a,” who is FTM, were blocked the Cairo Airport by customs officials after arriving on the same plane. They were deported back to Jordan. [photo via]
