A man from a poor rural family in Heilongjiang province who had been living as another man's wife for 11 years recently fulfilled his dream of becoming a woman by having a sex change operation in Tianjin municipality.
Li Xue, who is in his 30s, had been dreaming of living as a woman since he was a child, much to the consternation of his family. He left his hometown for a vagabond's life, during which he met his future husband. They married in 1997.
Li's husband and his mother both accepted him as a woman and supported his idea of living as a real woman by having a sex change. A local hospital agreed to carry out the procedure for free.
