"Fifty top Pakistani clerics have issued a religious decree declaring that transgender people have full marriage, inheritance and funeral rights under Islamic law."

That's very refreshing news! While Donald Trump and Republicans work on taking away the rights of transgender people here in the U.S., one of the most religiously strict countries in the world looks to give their transgender citizens even more rights.

Consider my mind blown!

Thanks for sharing this Stephanie!

It is good to see that logic is being practiced in the world. Too bad logic isn't working here in the US.

That happened 3 years ago. Here is how some of that played out. This article is from 11 months ago.
