    Outrage after two Thai transgender women refused entry to Hong Kong

    Outrage after two Thai transgender women refused entry to Hong Kong

    The pair, who were traveling to the city from Bangkok, were told they “did not satisfy the purpose of their holiday” to immigration officers

    A rights group has urged authorities to treat transgender people with more respect after two women were refused entry to the city at Hong Kong International Airport on Saturday.

    The two transgender women were visiting the city from Bangkok for sightseeing and shopping.

    Officials rejected the women’s visit because they did not satisfy the purpose of their holiday, the Immigration Department said.

    The pair were told to sign two documents; one to confirm they had completed full gender reassignment surgery and one to confirm they would voluntarily go back to Thailand immediately. After refusing to sign the documents the women returned to Bangkok on Saturday night.

    Transgenders fight for acceptance in Asia
    The pair, who were traveling to the city from Bangkok, were told they “did not satisfy the purpose of their holiday” to immigration officers

    A rights group has urged authorities to treat transgender people with more respect after two women were refused entry to the city at Hong Kong International Airport on Saturday.

    The two transgender women were visiting the city from Bangkok for sightseeing and shopping.

    Officials rejected the women’s visit because they did not satisfy the purpose of their holiday, the Immigration Department said.

    The pair were told to sign two documents; one to confirm they had completed full gender reassignment surgery and one to confirm they would voluntarily go back to Thailand immediately. After refusing to sign the documents the women returned to Bangkok on Saturday night.

    Lawyer Jonathan Man Ho-ching, representing one of the women, said he could not rule out the “possibility” of prejudice and discrimination and said there was a “lack of understanding … of different sexes and genders.”

    The lawyer said the women were also asked by officials if they were “cut already” – blunt language for asking if they had undergone full gender reassignment surgery.

    Joanne Leung Wing-yan, chairwoman of the Transgender Resource Centre, argued the pair’s travel history – which included Switzerland, Spain, Taiwan, South Korea – gave “no reason” to ask them to leave

    “I just hope there will be a different kind of treatment and understanding for transgender people,” she said.

    An Immigration Department spokeswoman said the tourists were “suspicious” and “failed to satisfy” that they were genuine travellers. She said the travellers would not automatically be approved or denied entry in future.

    Hong Kong’s handling of transgender people was criticised in a 2013 case at the airport, where the victim claimed immigration and customs officers behaved “like animals’’ during a body search and mocked her during a nine-hour ordeal.

    Both departments denied any wrongdoing.

    I'm shocked.....just shocked. What city wouldn't want a couple of diseased, thieving, drugging Thai boy whores? Very small-minded. Back to snatching chains on Walking Street, fellas.....

    seeing as the thai word for operation incorporates the word "cut" i dont see what the problem is.

    Having passed through Shanghai twice recently, I can say without reservation Chinese officials are cnuts.
    In the future I will avoid travelling Chinese airlines.

    Though the airline itself (china eastern) was not bad at all, in fact quite pleasant.

    Just the transfer and wait in Shanghai quite awful .

    I went through Beijing in february

    As you say, the airline is good, but it just seems the airport staff/officials are deliberately trying to hinder/annoy/wind up any foreigners going through by closing counters when they feel like it, merging two already long queues, taking as long as possible and being rude and unpleasant, opening up another counter then closing it again a minute later.

    You'll see three staff headed for counters with the impression that they are going to open them to relieve the massive congestion, but not just yet. They have to stand there having a social chat and lough loudly for 25mins in front of a crowd of weary passengers

    I had an hour transit and when I started queuing for security I knew and they knew this circus would take more than an hour a I was behind about 70 people, all moving at a snails pace

    If these LBs have already travelled to those countries, what are they suspected to have done there that raised a red flag in HK?

    Surely nobody in their right mind jets them across the world just for a shag?

    That pic just looks like any LB that loiters around Asoke after dark, hardly sexy at all

    There are 7 words one needs to heed when trying to enter any country in which you don't have the right of abode.

    At the discretion of the immigration officer.

    The End.

    Exactly, and it looks like the immigration officer was not convinced she/he went to Hong Kong just for a holiday. Looking at the TG's Twitter page, he/she seems to be some kind of "entertainer" or "performer". The immigration officer possibly though the TG person was in Hong Kong to work/do a show ... at the FLM club.
