More than a label: Transgender issues in Hong Kong


Life as a transgender person can often be difficult and isolating. Here’s where to find help for transgender issues in Hong Kong and advice for how to be an ally. Although attitudes are changing in many parts of the world, transgender people in Hong Kong continue to suffer from social and systematic exclusion. I wanted to learn more about transgender issues and the effects of this exclusion, and the realities of living as a transgender person in Hong Kong. So, I sat down with Dr. Winston Goh (he/him), and Dr. Tsang Ling Yin, Zephyrus (he/him) to talk about transitioning, what it means, and how we can support people in our lives who are transgender.
