Nature chooses who will be transgender, Individuals don't choose this
WHO WE ARE
BE SUPPORTIVE, NOT SORRY!
Actcept, is a campaign outlined to counter hate speech against transgender community of Pakistan by providing civic-minded individuals an opportunity to interact and extend a helping hand towards empowering them. The campaign strives to diminish the hatred and discrimination they face in the society by taking a stand for them and by providing them with equal rights to education and employment so that they can claim the place they deserve in our society.
The word transgender or Eunuchs, mostly called Khwaja Sara in Urdu language in Pakistani society is considered to be a taboo.
They are the most disadvantaged, marginalized and misrepresented communities of all. Which is why nobody wants to talk about them. From government to general public even their own families shuns them down and kept deprived of basic human rights and inclusion in the society. For the same reason they are denied access to education, health care, employment even respect, acceptance and more importantly recognition as human beings. Which forces them to engage in unwanted economic and social activities like begging, dancing, prostitution etc to earn their livelihood, often leading to human trafficking that further worsens the situation. The hatred towards them and societal misconceptions triggered the idea to challenge these norms and demand acceptance for the community.
