ABOUT US

TransAction the provincial Alliance is working for the wellbeing and protection of transgender and intersex community. We aim to improve gender identity and gender reassignment equality, rights and inclusion in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
TransAction is the first ever organized community movement of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa which represent 48000 to 55000 transgender and intersex community from 25 districts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Federally Administrated Tribal Areas (FATA).

TransAction Alliance is working to reclaim spaces for transgender and intersex community and end transphobia in the conservative and radicalized society of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and FATA. We are working to break barriers for sexual and gender minorities in conservative Pakistan, where SGM community is punished by prison or killed in the name of culture, tribal values and religion. Trans Action is providing space to trans and intersex community to share ideas, opinions and problems, its long-term goal is to change attitudes towards sexuality stenotypes and transphobia in Pakistan and has started its efforts with the hopes that Sexual and Gender (SGM) minority members using TransAction will find the confidence to stand up for their rights.

TransAction was founded in 2015 by Pakhtun transgender and intersex activist to focus on transgender and intersex issues in disadvantaged communities Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Federally Administrated Tribal Areas (FATA). TransAction strives to support transgender and intersex individuals through providing safe spaces for them. We strive to raise awareness through education and training to the transgender and intersex community, their families and general society, keeping in mind the languages and cultural contexts.

We seek to promote understanding and acceptance, both legally and socially, of transgender persons. The alliance is devoted to "overcoming the intolerance of transvestitism and transsexualism brought about by widespread ignorance." TransAction Pakistan is a network with both a local and national focus, made up of transgender and intersex activist whose main aim is to promote the healthy development of trans and intersex people through the delivery of a wide range of information, promotion, outreach in education and capacity-building, allowing the creation of a safe and productive environment for them.

TransAction is aware and recognizes the multitude of challenges that transgender and intersex people have in accessing services, we aim to hold Govt and private institutions accountable, and ensure that they provide basic services to all individuals, without discrimination, and uphold the rights of citizens as enshrined in the constitution of Pakistan. We also endeavor to work with organizations with similar goals to make a more significant impact in terms of trans issues in the country and on continent as a whole.
