Transsexual wants two passports

The Equality and Anti-discrimination Ombud (LDO) has received a unique enquiry.

A man claiming to be a transsexual has asked the LDO for assistance in acquiring two passports, one with a “woman passport photo”.

“I have previously applied to the Ministry of Justice on this matter, since traveling as a woman leads to considerable problems when one’s passport photo depicts a man,” the man writes, describing himself as a “trans-person”.

The applicant explains in the letter that traveling as a woman has become markedly more complicated after the Sep. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, due to the increased security checks at airports.
