WA transsexuals head to court

Two female-to-male transsexuals will take their fight to be legally recognised as men to the High Court next week in a case that will test WA’s gender reassignment laws.

One of the transsexual men, whose identities have been suppressed, said it had been three years since he applied to the State’s Gender Reassignment Board for a certificate which would legally recognise his change of gender and he was anxious for the High Court to grant leave for the case to be heard.
