Hong Kong – A Hong Kong transsexual was preparing Wednesday for a High Court battle for the right to marry a man after having a sex change operation to become a woman. The transsexual, who is in her 20s and has asked to remain anonymous, has been told she cannot marry her boyfriend because Hong Kong law only recognizes marriages between a couple born as male and female.

She has now won leave for a judicial review of the ruling by the Registrar of Marriages in a landmark hearing.
