Hong Kong Government Recognizes Transgender Woman Without Gender Reassignment Surgery
March 21, 2014 by HRC staff
Rubashkyn intensively worked for months with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCHR) to obtain a certificate and to qualify for recognition from the Colombian and Hong Kong governments. Throughout the process, Rubashkyn faced ridicule and harassment.
Now that she has successfully received a passport, Rubashkyn hopes to resettle in a country that recognizes the gender identity of individuals without requiring gender reassignment surgery.
Way to go, Eliana.
