The transgender community is Pakistani is often ignored, sidelined and criminalised. They find it hard to be accepted into the society and are often prevented from receiving an education and entering the job market. With no proper options, they are often reduced to begging on the streets or sex work.
This is a particular group that is heavily marginalized and a huge reason for this is our own acceptability of who they are. There are many stereotypes associated to the transgender community which we as children learn which leads to intolerance and desensitization, as we grow up.
Keeping this in mind, Anain Shaikh, a student from Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture has created a short animation that looks into the stereotypes from the perspective of a child. She hopes to normalise the transgender community, through this animation.
