AbstractThis is the first of two articles on the law relating to transgender persons in Hong Kong. This article examines the current administrative and legal status of Hong Kong's transgender persons. It argues that, whilst various policies and practices adopted by the authorities undoubtedly facilitate the every day lives of certain transgender persons, the legal situation (which perpetually condemns them to their biological sex as designated at birth) is inhumane and should no longer be tolerated. The second article, Robyn Emerton, 'Time for Change: A Call for the Legal Recognition of Transsexual and Other Transgender Persons in Hong Kong', also intended for publication in the Hong Kong Law Journal, will consider how the current position could be challenged by way of judicial review under the Hong Kong Bill of Rights Ordinance, or, ideally, changed through legislative reform.
