A Bahrain court will decide next month whether two women seeking sex changes will be allowed to undergo a life-changing operation. Judges are reviewing the case of the Bahrainis, who suffer from Gender Identity Disorder (GID). If the High Administrative Court rules in their favour on December 31, it means they will be eligible to undergo a sex change operation abroad, and legally change their name and gender. Lawyer Fawzia Janahi filed a combined case against the Health Ministry, General Directorate of Nationality, Passport and Residence, and Central Informatics Organisation in a bid to fast-track the process.
