ECHR says Finnish marriage rules fair for transsexuals

The Court of Human Rights (ECHR) in Strasbourg, France, on November 27, 2013A transsexual from Finland who said she was being compelled to convert her marriage to a civil partnership in order to be recognised as a woman had her case rejected by Europe’s rights court on Wednesday. The woman, who underwent gender reassignment surgery in 2009, had complained that Finnish authorities had refused to recognise her as a woman on official documentation until she changed her marriage status. Judges at the Strasbourg-based court said civil partnerships in Finland offer legal protection for same-sex couples “almost identical to that of marriage.” Heli Hamalainen, who brought the case, was born male in 1963 and married a woman in 1996.
