Gender Interactive Alliance (GIA) Pakistan

“The Gender Interactive Alliance is an organization working for the equality and civil rights of transgender people in Pakistan. Transgender persons do not have the same level of rights as other Pakistanis. They are also routinely harassed, face discrimination, and in some cases are subjected to violence simply for being transgender. Our aim is to raise awareness of the issues concerning transgender people in Pakistan and cultivate a supportive, empowering and non-judgmental environment for them. We hope to achieve the acceptance of transgender people as equal members of Pakistani society. One of the main objectives of GIA is to advocate and facilitate employment for transgender Pakistanis. There is a whole spectrum of possible gender identities. We use the term transgender as an adjective and a qualifier to describe people who do not identify with conventional male and female gender roles. This adjective is an umbrella term which covers a wide range of possible identities including, but not limited to, intersexual, transsexual, hijra, khwaja sira, butch, cross-dressers, and transvestites.” (website)
