Trans (Khawajasira) activists, who are leading the fight for their rights, speak at SWGI’s discussion forum about the concerted disinformation campaign launched against the Transgender Persons (Protection of Rights) Act 2018. This campaign has endangered the lives of Transgender people (Khawajasiras) across Pakistan and threatens to roll back hard-won legal protections. This moment demands urgent action by those who believe in the right to life and liberty, who are committed to empathy and respect, and who are alarmed by fake news filling our society with hate.
