Jacqueline Galiaci (194? - ) 1st Brazilian to have gender surgery

Jacqueline is the first known Brazilian to have transgender surgery, which she had from Dr Burou in Casablanca in 1969. This was two years before the first surgery in Brazil, that on Waldirene Nogueir by Dr Robero Farina.

She requested the addition of 'Jacqueline' in the margin of her birth registration. The Magistrate authorized both this and the registration of her female sex.

Jacqueline's entry was deleted from the official PT.WIKIPEDIA in 2008. http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikip%C3%A9dia:P%C3%A1ginas_para_eliminar/Jacqueline_Galiaci.

Wikipedia does this a lot. If something goes against prevailing conventions, they will delete it. Wikipedia is very corrupt and I don't trust any info they give.
