Karachi (AFP) – Hundreds of transgender activists and their supporters protested in Pakistan’s southern city of Karachi Sunday to campaign for equal rights and raise awareness of discrimination against the community. The protest comes days after the local release of “Joyland”, a controversial Pakistan movie about a married man’s affair with a transgender woman that was initially banned following complaints by Islamist groups. “The time has come for us to tell people who we are and what our demands are,” protest march organiser Shahzadi Rai told AFP. “We are human beings and have the same heart, the same feelings, and same emotions that you have.”
