    On Wednesday’s Backchat we’re looking at transgender rights in Hong Kong

    In a landmark ruling on Monday, the Court of Final Appeal decided that the authorities had breached the rights of two transgender men, by refusing to allow them to use their new gender on their identity cards, because they had not undergone full sex reassignment surgery.

    Ruling in the men‘s favour, Hong Kong highest court called this "an unacceptably harsh burden" on them.

    The issue was first brought to court in 2019 after the commissioner of registration refused to review the gender status on the pair's identity cards as they had only undergone hormone treatment and had their breasts removed.

    So what exactly will this ruling mean for the transgender population here? Will any laws have to be changed as a result?

    After 9:15am, we’ll look at the prevalence of young-onset dementia in Hong Kong
