Court Rules In Favor Of Gender Switch

Argentine Teen To Become Woman

A 17-year old boy made history in Argentina. After a lengthy court battle, the boy, Natalie, won the right to change his gender. It’s the first time in Argentine history a minor has been given a sex change.

Of the landmark case, gay activist Cesar Cigliutti said:

What’s important and unusual about this case is that Natalie is a minor – she is not yet 18 years old – and this has become an emblematic case for people who have a gender identity different to their biological one.

To ensure a smooth transition, the judge ruled that Natalie must see a shrink post-op.
