A Kiwi transgender woman is considering getting her gender affirmation surgery done overseas as demand in New Zealand for the service soars. Ella Jenkins, 23, was put on the list for surgery in October but says she hasn’t heard anything since, and is now considering going overseas. That could set her back around $35,000, so her partner has set up a Givealittle page. “I have not heard anything since an email in October saying ‘you’re on the list’, which is a bit disheartening” Jenkins, from Christchurch, told Newshub Late.
