Dostana_ a nonprofit organization for male health arranged a workshop on April 28 in Mehran Hotel, Karachi. The Topic of the workshop was, "Role of Media in Protection of Transgender Rights in Pakistan: A training program for CSO and Media."
It was a great opportunity to meet transgenders activists and discuss their issues and their issues with Media. In this colorful four hour interactive workshop I came to know that we humans are all same in the end of the day.
Transgender right bill was discussed in detail along with how mainstream media and can sanitize the transgender's representation. Transgenders are in minority in our conservative society. Being an open gay and transgender takes lots of courage. We have to be open minded to have a inclusive and safe society for every gender.
