INDONESIA - 1997

In 1997, when sex-change operations were still relatively unusual in the West, government television showed a movie called "I Am Vivian." Based on a true story, it showed how an Indonesian boy who felt more like a girl was finally accepted by his family as a transvestite. In one of the more striking scenes, a doctor advises Vivian to have a sex-change operation. The movie ends with her in a white wedding gown, complete with veil, being carried by the groom to the bridal suite. (New York Times)
