Pakistan’s First Transgender Model Breaks Barriers

Kami Sid’s latest photo shoot is not just another photo shoot because it isn’t merely about a model promoting a brand but it is a social activist breaking barriers. Kim Sid is a transgender who has been fighting for the rights of other transgenders for the longest time now. This time around he is creating history by being the first transgender model in Pakistan.

Transgenders are usually relegated to the background in all social circles and do not get easily accepted in the workplace too. Because of the social nonacceptance of transgenders in Pakistan they are usually make-up artists working backstage but never in the center stage.

The make up for this photo shoot was done by Nighat Misbah of Depilex and photographer Haseeb M. Siddiqi took the picture. Waqar J. Khan also styled Kami. The end result was a look which is being appreciated by many.

Here are some pictures from the photo shoot.
