While Pakistan has a lot of avenues to work on, the country has all the reasons to be proud of the concrete steps it took in terms of transgender rights. Shamus Khan and Joss Greene, authors on CNN News, in their combined collaborated article titled ‘What Pakistan gets right and the US gets wrong on trans rights lauded the efforts as well.
They write that while the West has been a self-proclaimed champion of human rights, it should be looking towards developing countries like Pakistan when it comes to transgender rights.
The Trump administration proposes further attacking these Americans by erasing their identities and thereby excluding them from federal protections. Americans must fight back. 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.
