Human rights activists are planning to hold a rally in support of Pakistan’s transgender community in Karachi on Friday, December 7. Supporters are being asked to gather outside of the Karachi Press Club starting at 15:00 (local time). The demonstration is being organized to highlight increasing violence and harassment targeting the transgender community throughout the country. Heightened security measures and localized traffic disruptions are anticipated in the area. Counter-protests are possible in the vicinity of the rally and clashes between participants of the rally and counter-demonstrators cannot be ruled out.
Individuals in Karachi are advised to monitor the situation and to avoid all protests as a precaution.
