Una mujer de 89 años lleva a juicio a su yerno transexual para ver a sus dos nietas
La historia podría parecer común. Una pareja se divorcia, la mujer fallece poco después y la custodia de las criaturas que tuvieron en común, pasa al padre, que no cumple el régimen de visitas con la abuela materna. Hasta ahí, nada que no se vea con frecuencia en un juzgado.
Lo infrecuente es llegar al juicio, esperar al que fue yerno y que en lugar de un hombre en vaqueros o con traje, aparezca una señorita luciendo tacones y revelando una nueva identidad. Él ahora es ella. El juicio, mediático por la situación personal del padre transexual con una reasignación de sexo, se celebrará este miércoles.
