Malta’s Constitutional Court OK’d transgender marriages Nov. 29, reported Transgender Europe.
In a case brought by Joanne Cassar, the court ruled she now is free to marry her boyfriend.
The decision, which overturned earlier Maltese rulings, cites a 2002 European Court of Human Rights case that established transsexuals’ rights to respect for their private and family life and right to marry.
