Transvestite prevented from changing name

A transvestite from the village of Tjllmo in south-eastern Sweden has had his application for a name change turned down.

Lennart Widahr had wanted to change his name to Pia but the National Tax Board (Skatteverket) informed him that the only possible way for him to receive a female name was to first have a sex change. Widahr has no plans to do so, according to newspaper stgta Correspondenten.

Widahr has used the name Pia in his daily life ever since his second marriage came to and end and he admitted that he had secretly been a transvestite all his life.
