Pakistan's Trans Pride Parade

Saturday the Lahore community celebrated the new year by hosting Pakistan’s First Trans Pride Parade.

Before the start of 2019, the transgender community of Pakistan celebrated the first ever Trans Pride in Lahore, which happened for the first time in the history of Pakistan.
2018 has been a very fruitful year for the Transgender Community of Pakistan in terms of recognition of Trans Rights and sensitization.

Ms. Jannat Ali (Program Director Saathi Foundation) led the pride march. According to her, this is just a small appreciation to those who have worked hard for Transgender People Rights and also, it is to remember those transgender people who lost their lives in hate or discriminatory crimes towards.

Gay Star News first reported:

The event kicked off with a press conference by the activists leading the march.

The march itself attracted a big crowd, as they took to the streets through the second most populous Pakistani city. People held signs in support of the community and waved flags, as people on the street looked on.
