The president of the Transgender community said that they are treated harshly by different communities of our society. In this episode of Aam Olas, they precisely pointed towards the Doctors community and the Police.
Moreover, they said that recently two of their Trans genders were shot in Peshawar and when they took them to the hospital the doctors made fun of them and said that should we put them in males ward or female.
