Iqra further praised Reem for bringing the much needed change the world needs to see. "Bravo, Reem - you are indeed a catalyst of the change you wish to see!" she said.
Sharif started working as a trans victim support officer two months ago and since then she has helped in protecting 16 trans people in Punjab.
“The other day we got a call from a trans woman that her brothers had threatened to kill her. I went and talked them into accepting that who they thought was their brother had always been a sister,” said 32-year-old Sharif.
“In another case, a tenant was being thrown out of her home for being a trans person and I was able to stop that,” she told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.
