Sex change film tests Iran attitudes

Aljazeera.Net - Sex change film tests Iran attitudes: "The authorities allowed just a single screening of the 40-minute exploration of Iranian attitudes to sex change operations before an invited audience of 100 people in Tehran's Artists' House.

That it was shown at all was largely thanks to a little known religious edict by Ayatollah Khomeini, the late revolutionary leader, who ruled that such operations were an acceptable last resort for patients whose self-image was irreconcilably at odds with their birth sex."
