星 (Jīn Xīng) is China’s most famous transgender person. Starting life as a man, Jīn Xīng became a professional dancer, training in New York, touring in Europe, and winning the Táolĭ Cup, China’s most prestigious dance award.
At age 26, Jīn Xīng became the first to get Chinese government approval to undergo a sex change operation and be officially regarded as fully female. The operation left her leg temporarily paralyzed, but she eventually regained her dancing ability. She adopted three children and married a German before rising to superstardom as a judge in the Chinese version of “So You Think You Can Dance?”
She since started her own weekly talk show, the Jīn Xīng Show, where she has been sassily roasting famous people in front of an audience of 100 million. Her trademarks are her sharp criticisms of everything, and her special hand gesture, “完美” (wánmeĭ) - “Perfect”.
Swirl, then out: “Perfect”. Aifuqing Online
