Tianjin transsexual gets new Chinese ID card as a woman _English_Xinhua

BEIJING, April 16 (Xinhua) — Ying Ning, the 33-year-old Tianjin man who became a woman through transsexual operations, got a new Chinese ID card as a female on Tuesday.

“I am so excited to receive it after a month-long wait,” said Ying, who is believed to be the first transsexual person in China to go public with the media under a new gender.

“The ID card has a special meaning for me, that I have been accepted by society. It will be the beginning of my new life,” Ying told a reporter with the Tianjin-based newspaper Daily News.

Good job! Precedents like these are great, because it makes the whole issue more familiar to people. So, I’m sure this will make life a bit easier for transsexuals in China.
