Kami Chouhdry

Trans Rights Activist

Kami Sid is a social activist known for working for Pakistan’s transgender community. Her powerful debut photo-shoot in the fashion world drew public attention to issue of trans phobia. Kami has also used her participation in several documentary projects (Chuppan Chupai, BBC 3 documentary & ‘How Gay Is Pakistan’) to raise global awareness on trans and LGB issues in Pakistan. Apart from these kind of creative projects, she is also working with the government’s policy-making team that is developing inclusive rights for the transgender community in the National Assembly. Since 2015, Kami has been engaged with different public and private forums to promote and sensitize mainstream society on transgender issues and the hurdles that the trans community faces in the country.
