2007 Test Case: Birth Certificate Trips Singapore Transsexual Woman in the US
I’ve often wondered about the Singapore transsexual women who married foreign men and moved overseas to start afresh. Through Mdm Cyn, I learnt about the more successful Bugis Street sisters who married Swiss Germans and retired to a life of seclusion in some snow-capped Swiss Village.
