It is no secret that the concept of Transgender rights is still considerably alien to Pakistanis as we continue to systemically marginalize them and treat them like 3rd class citizens.
However, the good news is that there have been developments thanks to the the Transgender Persons (Protection of Rights) Bill 2018 introduced in the Pakistani National Assembly.
Now, the community is recognized as a gender of their own by the law, and measures for their welfare are also being taken by the government. Many organizations have also began giving employment to transgender individuals, which is great.
Even better is when we hear news of the community’s individuals being empowered to the extent that they have their own startup businesses.
A great example of that is Moon, a trans woman who has started a monthly food delivery service in Lahore called Koonda Chaari.
Feminists and human rights activists in Pakistan are rejoicing at the news and sending love to Moon.
This is a promotional tweet for our trans sister Moon who started home cooked food delivery along with other transwomen to deliver food in offices on monthly basis in Lahore, please check it out and support their startup.
