Ladyboys Refused Entry To Hong Kong

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.

This means that they thought they would be working!  GGs have been refused entry as well.

When I took my other half to HK she was dragged off for an extra interview at Immigration. Luckily in and out in about 5 minutes, I loitered in the area so they could see we were together.

My LB GF came to visit me in HK. Gave her lots of support documents and she sailed right through on her own.

We later went to Thailand and, upon return to HK, got held at immi for 45-60 minutes.

Know an LB in Pattaya who has been, not sure about if  or how long  she was detained , she goes every year (3 times now) so the money she can make there is  obviously worth any potential border grief she gets

What sort of questions did Immigration ask in Thailand?

These are exciting times in Hong Kong for sure!

What I don't understand about the protests is the long term endgame.  Won't Hong Kong be fully integrated into China in 2047?  So it would seem to me that whatever is accomplished now by the protesters is just delaying the inevitable.

Perhaps Singapore and Taiwan could be beneficiary of this turmoil?

Stay safe Soc!
