Road Towards Gender Equality: Pakistan Opens First Public School For Transgender Community

While we may have a number of reasons to be hopeless, Pakistan definitely has given us quite some reasons to hold our heads up pride in the sphere of transgender rights. We have made some commendable advancements for the relief of our marginalised transgender community, turning world’s heads towards us. The global community also asked America to look towards Pakistan to get inspiration.

Shamus Khan and Joss Greene’s piece for CNN, titled as ‘What Pakistan gets right and the US gets wrong on trans rights” expresses the same.

To do so, we might look East, to places like Pakistan, for guidance on how to protect our fellow Americans’ right to exist. – it read.
