A national model citizen who took care of her sick mother for 15 years has made headlines again in China after undergoing gender reassignment surgery.
Winnie Liu, 28, said she felt 'more complete' after finishing the more than 20 procedures on 8 April.
Her announcement sparked debate in the conservative country, attracting more than 190,000, mostly supportive, comments on Weibo, China's version of Twitter.
'She looks pretty,' one person wrote. 'It’s two totally separate issues between being a model citizen and changing gender.'
