Zhang Lin, the first Chinese transsexual to be issued a marriage certificate, is legally engaged to her partner and will hold a big wedding ceremony on May 1st.

The grand engagement ceremony was held Saturday in Nanjing, capital of east China's Jiangsu Province, with a locally celebrated host presiding over the celebration.

The 38-year-old received not only her new ID card this March but also a marriage certificate approved by the civil affairs department.

Before her sex-change operation Zhang Lin was married to a woman and had a 12-year-old daughter.
