Saudis on social: A Saudi transsexual

When it comes to freedoms, human rights organisations will tell you Saudi Arabia doesn't have the best track record. And perhaps because compared to elsewhere there is limited personal freedom, defiance across the region has gone digital.

In this part of the BBC's special series "Saudis on social" we tell the story of 20-year-old "Youssef" who posted an anonymous account on Twitter about the perils of being a young transsexual in Saudi Arabia.
