Sexual Rights of Transgenders in Japan

Prof. Yuko Higashi

In 1995, a group of Japanese medical professionals raised the issue of whether sex reassignment surgery (SRS) could officially be considered an ethical medical procedure. In the ten years since then, the situation surrounding trans-people in Japan has changed dramatically. In particular, the Japanese version of Standards of Care was established in 1997 and led to the first publicly announced SRS being performed in 1998.
