Reem Sharif, a transsexual woman in Pakistan who has suffered humiliation and discrimination throughout her life, is now fighting to help many others from her community by joining the country’s police force.

She works at a police help center aimed at supporting many others from her community so that they do not go through the same ordeal like her in Pakistan, a conservative country where transgenders live in the shadows and face much violence.
