Transgenders demand implementation of Rights Act

64

Transgenders community has demanded for implementation of Transgenders’ Rights Act for ensuring their security and inclusion in society with dignity.

Talking to APP on Saturday, an expert of Transgender Law, Nayab Ali said that the only support for transgender people in Pakistan was provided by their peers.

In the absence of medical care that is sensitive to their needs, the relief usually comes from the community members looking after them using traditional methods and wisdom, she said.

She added that an inclusive transgender policy allowed individuals to take part as their self-determined gender and they were assigned at birth.—APP
