Two trans men working for the government in Bahrain have been given initial approval for sex reassignment. Fawzia Janahi, the lawyer acting on behalf of the two, said the High Administrative Court had referred them to a medical examiner. This is expected to lead to them being allowed to undergo sex reassignment surgery abroad, and to be legally recognised as male.
