Opening doors: Pakistan's first transgender beauty salon

Bebo Haider, a transgender woman, was turned away from beauty salons in Pakistan so many times that she created her own salon open to people from all walks of life. The salon, called "Trawah," opened in January 2019 and aims to serve people from mainstream society as well as trans-communities in order to create a dialogue between the two. The salon also serves as a livelihood for trans people, with 25-35 customers a month, and is also funded by the Sub Rang Society and Oxfam Pakistan.
