Interesting story from Vietnam news outlet. I will add doctor profiles and other info about Yanhee Hospital to MyThaiDoctors.com soon!
Cindy Thai Tai is ecstatic with her new life, she says. After undergoing gender reassignment surgery in 2005, Tai became one of just a few Vietnamese to speak publicly about her transsexuality. Tai, whose full name is Nguyen Thai Tai, always felt different, even as a little boy.
He preferred girls? clothes and games and felt he simply wasn?t meant to be a male.
As he grew up, Tai increasingly yearned to be a woman but was tortured by thoughts of becoming a social outcast if he were to reveal his true feelings.
Unlike countries such as Thailand, where transsexuality is more widely accepted, Vietnam remains conservative and transgendered individuals are commonly stigmatized. Yet the ' harder Tai struggled to engage in ?normal? life, the more mental torment he suffered.
