Transgender became the leader of news on Pakistani television (6 photos)

For the first time in the history of Pakistan, 21-year-old transgender Marvia Malik became the news anchor on Kohinoor News local television channel. The presenter, who replaced the sex, first appeared live on March 23rd. Earlier, Marvia graduated from the journalism faculty of the University of Punjab, and went to television to prove that “transgender people are capable of any job and can do whatever they want.” “I want to show this country that we are not just objects of ridicule, that we are also people,” she said.

In early March, Pakistan passed a law protecting transgender rights. Now they can change sex in passports, inherit property and not be discriminated against if they hold public office.
