Dating While Trans in China

New York-based NGO Asia Cat­a­lyst esti­mates that there are more than 4 mil­lion trans­gen­der indi­vid­u­als in Chi­na. Yet many Chi­nese peo­ple only know one: cel­e­brat­ed dancer and talk show host Jin Xing. Jin is het­ero­sex­u­al — mar­ried to a man, with three adopt­ed chil­dren — so many assume that this iden­ti­ty applies to all trans­gen­der peo­ple.
