A court in Martinique has granted a twenty-three-year-old man permission to be regarded as a woman, local reports say.
According to Martinique 1 Ere, the individual is one of the first transgender people on the island to have a validated change of identity before a court in Martinique.
The online publication stated that in adolescence, ‘Flo’ claimed femininity.
As a result, Flo asked the court for a change of identity on official documents.
Flo’s mother, Veronique, was quoted as saying that she has no problem with her son being officially designated a woman.
“I always saw that I had a little boy who was different. Different from the others because he liked to play with dolls. He made me buy clothes for my niece’s old dolls that she collected,” Veronique told Martinique 1Ere.
At 23, Flo studied fashion design by correspondence.
Flo’s parents, Véronique and David say they are proud of the transition into being officially known as a woman.
