Israelis Bar Transgender Woman From Western Wall

YNet News  and Jerusalem Post  report that in Israel on Tuesday a transgender woman was turned away from the women's section of the Western Wall in Jerusalem. When Kay Long, who no longer identifies or dresses as a male, approached the women's section, she was turned away by an Orthodox Jewish woman patrolling the section who told her the section was for women only. When Long approached the men's section, Orthodox men yelled at her pointing her toward the women's section.
