Controversial legislation like House Bill 2 and a questionable administration about to take office have raised concerns for the LGBT equality movement. Protests are no thing of the past within the United States, nor are they halfway across the world in Pakistan. On August 2, 2016, protests calling for transgender equality and an end to the injustice against khawaja siras took place in major cities across Pakistan. The protests came after the brutal rape of two khawaja siras in Peshawar that went unnoticed. As some protesters shared, two khawaja siras were torturously urinated on, forced to have their heads shaved, and gang-raped. These images are all from the protest in Lahore, Pakistan.
