Ashamedly, very little is ever written on transgender rights, or efforts made to highlight transgender needs in the media. Where the British Government has taken many positive strides in the development and equality for the transgender community here in the UK. In the US, American President has just recently banned both active serving and reserved army transgender personnel from being part of the US army. In many parts of Asia and Africa, unfortunately transgender people are often persecuted and ridiculed in society.
However in June 2017, Pakistan became one of the first countries in the world to issue the marginalised transgender community its first passport with a transgender category as an important milestone in the struggle against discrimination. The South Asian nation, last week issued a passport to prominent transgender activist Farzana Riaz with an X to symbolise the third sex printed under the gender category of the travel document. The transgender community in Pakistan welcomed and praised the government’s decision, saying it was a forward step in Pakistan’s history and for the global transgender community to finally be given an identity. Incidently, Pakistan also has an active transgender representation in Parliament.
