First transgender doctor in Pakistan

Sara Gill, a transgender person from Pakistan’s Sindh province, has made history by becoming the first transgender doctor in the country, as she did not let social discrimination and right abuses to weaken her determination.

Although transgender persons have been treated as outcasts in Pakistan, some like Sara continue to fight the discrimination and become successful in chasing their dreams.

Sara studied at Jinnah Medical and Dental College, which is an affiliate institution of Karachi University. "I feel proud to become the first transgender doctor of Pakistan," Sara said. 

She also said: “My family warned me that if declare myself as a transgender, they will stop paying for my studies. Now I will have to arrange for my next year’s fee on my own.”

She added that she intends to use her profession for the welfare and prosperity of other transgender persons.

Pakistan's transgender person have time and again proved that they are no less than any other member of society and lack no talent, but only opportunities, resources and equal rights.

Congratulations Sara!!!
