-The LGBTQ community has always been discriminated around the world

-Many fought for their rights and freedom to what they really are

-This transgender from Pakistan issued her first passport that indicated 'X' on her passport.

Pakistan is one of the countries around the world who legally accepted the third s*x, LGBTQ community, transgender/transs*xual and any other forms. They were allowed to have their own identity cards and some even ran for the election.

On the other hand, Homosexuality is also prohibited on Pakistan and is punishable by 10 years imprisonment or even 100 lashes in Pakistan.

But....this transgender named Farzana Riaz issued a passport and it was given to her. She has a plan to use it as a move to have transgender/transs*xual rights around the globe.

KAMI wants to remind all people that no matter what a person's gender is, they deserve equal rights!

Farzana Riaz was from Peshwar City, Pakistan who first issued a passport that will indicate a gender that will indicate 'X' on the passport to let people know that the owner is a transgender/transs*xual.

"I have received my passport which mentions my gender as X and not as a male or female," Farzana told AFP on Saturday.

"Earlier I had a passport which had described my gender as a male. But this time I told the authorities that I won't accept my passport if it doesn't identify me as a transgender," the 30-year-old co-founder and president of rights organisation TransAction said.

"Now it will be more convenient for me to travel abroad because earlier I faced problems at international airports because of a contradiction in my appearance and s*x mention on my passport," she added.

Up until now, some countries are still now in favor of the LGBTQ community specially on the Southeastern countries.

Farzana's move will be used as a campaign throughout the world asking for acceptance and rights for the LGBTQ community.
