    A pleasant surprise to find a country adopting an approach to trans people without trying to force them into either male/female categories.

    For others like me who had never heard of the term Hijra before you might want to look at the Hijra wikipedia article

    Of course homosexuality remains a crime in Pakistan.

    Good that the law relating to hjiras is changing. But Pakistan is hardly advanced when it comes to LGBT rights.
