World Exclusive: The Man Who Gave Birth
THE world's first pregnant man has broken his silence in an exclusive interview with the Sunday Express.
Dylan, 40, and his 10-year-old daughter Joanna opened their home to the Sunday Express to explain how a woman turned into a man, had a baby and became a dad.

Government refuses passport to transgender woman
A post by Gay in Uganda last week reveals the discrimination the country's lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) population faces when applying for travel documents.

Children's hospital launches sex change for kids program
A doctor at the renowned Children's Hospital Boston has launched a new program to drug children to delay puberty so they can decide whether they want a male or a female body, according to a report today in the Boston Globe.

Trans woman sentenced to prison after stabbings
Excerpt: Alex Lee, director of the Transgender, Gender Variant and Intersex Justice Project, a group that started working with Lawrence in 2005, said the justice system has treated Lawrence unfairly. The people who have attacked Lawrence in the past have never been found or charged with anything, while Lawrence is going to prison, where Lee said she'll be "a giant target."
Lee pointed to research from the University of California, Irvine that transgender people are 13 times more likely to be sexually assaulted in the state's prisons than non-transgender people. The 2007 study included a random sample of 322 inmates, plus a sample of 39 transgender prisoners.
