The first transgender person looks for gender surgery in UAE


The transgender man from United Arab Emirates aims to become the first person in his country to change the gender surgically. He already completed the petition to the Abu Dhabi Court of First Instance to permit him legal gender changing.

The man’s lawyer claimed that his 29-year-old client suffered from gender dysphoria ( unsatisfaction with the gender of birth) since 3: “Ever since she was three, the woman felt instead that she is actually a male,” Gender reassignment was legalised in the UAE for transgender people a month ago. “The surgical procedure by which a transgender person’s physical appearance and function of their existing sexual characteristics are altered to resemble that of their identified gender is permitted if it is part of a treatment for gender dysphoria in transgender people, as advised by a medical commission to be set up for this purpose,” the new law specifies.
