Back to 2008 when the trial of W’s case hasn’t started, Transgender Resource Center has started investigating the issue and now it is the fifth since we picked it up. Behind this long story was quite some workload, so as the implication and significance to the broad community of transgender people. Why are we opposing the amendment of the marriage bill that only transgender people who completed the so call FULL sex reassignment surgery can enjoy the right to marriage? Why are some of the transgender people supporting it then? How far can we go in this course of Transgender movement, and what are the consequences?
The clause and article might sound boring to you, how about the intriguing yet covet facts about it? Why do the gay and les community join our battle? To jerk us around, or is there a story to tell? Instead of discerning right and wrong, we will try to understand from an interview footage of conflicting views the angles and inclinations of our community.
