Even Though Hong Kong Paid For Her Gender Reassignment, This Trans Woman Cannot Marry Her Boyfriend

While Hong Kong pays for transgender citizens to undergo gender reassignment surgery, a MTF woman identified only as W. was again denied a marriage license, with a judge saying it’s not a matter for the courts, and that the Marriage Ordinance Act defines marriage as between one man and one woman, according to to one’s birth certificate — not their government-issued identity card, which lists. as a woman. Argued counsel for Hong Kong’s government: “If there is a desire to change attitude, then the legislature can seek to do that. What the court is doing here is to simply look at what the law is at the moment.”
