In Changsha: Demonstration for the right to be a woman – By Ada Fredelius – Source: Chinaren

Yesterday morning, two young male to female transsexuals took to the streets of Changsha City, Hunan Province. They carried banners saying: “I want to have a sex change and live my life as a woman” and “Even if I die from it, I want a sex change, one day as a woman would be worth it”.

A curious crowd gathered around the two. One of the demonstrators, who introduced him/herself as Shen Qingqing explained that their aim was to make the public more tolerant towards transsexuals, as well as to get more hospitals to perform sex change operations.
