Image: A group of ‘Hijra’ at a protest in Islamabad. Hijra are a socially recognised third gender in India, Pakistan and other South Asian countries. They are physiologically male, but identify as closer to the female gender, although they dislike being called ‘men who dress as women’ - as such, on passports, censuses and other forms they are listed as a separate gender.

I think they’re beautiful and I think the west needs to get over itself :)
