In Pakistan, trans men search for inclusion, visibility


              FILE - In this Friday, Nov. 18. 2022 file photo, member of an Islamic student group 'Islami Jamiat-e-Talaba' hold a demonstration against the releasing of '"Joyland" movie, in Lahore, Pakistan. The Pakistani movie and Oscar contender "Joyland" caused uproar last year for its depiction of a relationship between a married man and a trans woman, but it also shone a spotlight on the country's transgender community. Trans people are considered outcasts by many in Pakistan, despite some progress with a law protecting their rights and court rulings that allow them to choose a gender that is neither male nor female.

Trans people are considered outcasts by many in Pakistan, despite some progress with a law protecting their rights and court rulings that allow them to choose a gender that is neither male nor female. But the struggle for acceptance and inclusion is harder for Pakistan's trans men, who say they lack the same level of support and visibility as trans women, who are in public office, in films, and on TV.
