Around the world, there is a call for a more inclusive society for the transgender community. Something that can help them become a part of the mainstream, and provide them with the means to become financially independent and secure.
With this thought, the first commercial trans-led tailor shop has opened in Karachi in Pakistan. According to a report in Dawn, the country’s Trans Pride Society is behind this amazing initiative.
The inauguration happened Sunday. Per the report, Trans Pride Society is an NGO run by one Nisha Rao. In a social media post, she wrote about the “momentous beginning”, and shared a series of pictures celebrating the happy and proud occasion.
