Bridal shop refuses to let transgender shopper try on gowns

A Saskatoon woman who identifies herself as transgender says a bridal shop in the city refused to let her try on dresses as she planned her wedding. Rohit Singh says she was looking at outfits in Jenny's Bridal Boutique but when she asked to try one on, she was refused. The shop owner thought Singh was a man and felt other people in the store were uncomfortable with Singh trying on dresses. "She said, sorry we don't allow men to wear dresses here," Singh recalled. "I said I'm not a man, I'm transgender." When contacted Thursday by CBC News, the bridal shop owner, Jenny Correia, said she stands by her decision. "To me it doesn't matter," Correia said. "He looked like a man. There was quite a few brides in the store. If you see a man trying on dresses, you're going to feel uncomfortable." Singh later found a red gown at My Lynh Bridal, on Idylwyld Drive North, where she described the service as excellent. Singh's marriage took place on Monday. Picture of the happy couple at link
