But “Cindy” isn’t what she seems. She’s an 18-year-old boy called Richard – who is desperate to have a sex-change to look even more like the former Jordan, and ­become a top glamour model just like her.

`No relief for transgenders in Karnataka'
Lack of medical help and government welfare schemes is plaguing the transgender community. To top it all, indiscriminate use of hormone tablets without doctors' help poses a huge threat to their health.

Caught in the middle
Pictured is Huang Wei, a 22-year-old transsexual woman in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province who suffered botched surgery that left her with no testicles, but no female genital organ. Now Huang's identity card is considered invalid and because the ID card says "male" but with no testicles.
It's caused Huang difficulty finding employment since coming to Shenzhen from Sichuan Province some years ago. "Once I went to a kindergarten to apply for a job as a dancing teacher," Huang said. "The employers were satisfied with this 'girl' but when they saw my ID they were shocked. I've lost many job opportunities because of this."
