Transexuals in Iran 25 Feb 2008
Transexuals in Iran
BBC Two documentary explores why so many Iranians undergo sex change operations

Although homosexuality is a crime punishable by death in Iran, more sex change operations are carried out there than any other nation in the world apart from Thailand, with the government providing up to half the cost for those needing financial assistance. American-Iranian film maker Tanaz Eshaghian has made a documentary ‘Transsexual In Iran’ exploring the phenomenon and joins Jane to discuss her film.

'Transexuals in Iran' is on BBC 2 on Monday 25th February 2008 at 9pm.
