Cuba has authorized
Sex-Change Operations for Transsexual citizens. 

KBOO’s Jacob Anderson-Minshall has more on the
story.

  

The Associated Press reported Monday that Cuba has
official authorized gender-reassignment operations and will offer them free to
qualifying citizens.

The move—one of the latest
in a series of changes implemented by President Raul Castro since he succeeded
his elder brother, Fidel—puts Cuba above any US state in providing affordable
access to gender reassignment surgery.
