Transgender Candidate Campaigns For Election In Khyber-Pakhtunkwa Province, Pakistan.
In Pakistan, a transgender candidate is among the hopefuls taking part in local elections in Khyber-Pakhtunkwa Province on May 30. “Pervaiz Baby,” as he’s known, is not the first transgender candidate in Pakistan. But this is a rare phenomenon in a conservative culture. Transgender people were denied the right to vote in Pakistan until a supreme court decision in their favor in 2011.
