Transgender Started Food Delivery Service Koonda Chaari Means khaana peena

Transgender Started Food Delivery Service Koonda Chaari Honestly A Great Initiative

In the past, Pakistan’s transgender community has been marginalized and discriminated against relentlessly. In 2018, Pakistan passed the historic Transgender Persons Protection of Rights Act, allowing members of the community to choose their gender and to have that identity recognized on official documents, including national IDs, passports and driver’s licenses.

The first passport was issued to Farzana Jan, President of the TransAction alliance in Pakistan. Jan’s gender is classified as X on official documentation, a new classification option only recently introduced in the country.

 

The country also saw its first transgender news anchor in Marvia Malik, who made her debut on the Kohenoor News channel in 2018.

Since then, she has become a public figure, even appearing on the ramp at the PFDC Sunsilk Fashion Week last year.

These are only two examples of members of the transgender community in Pakistan who have made great strides. Pakistan’s transgender community is working tirelessly towards entering the mainstream workforce.

This is where the Lahore based transgender activist, Moon, comes in. Moon has just started her own food delivery service in the city by the name of Koonda Chaari, which in the transgender community translates to khaana peena.

Not only is the food made by members of the community, but their riders and marketing executives are also all transgendered individuals looking to make a clean, healthy living.

The initiative has been well received by the public, with many notable feminists and human rights activists taking note and commending Moon on taking strides towards helping members of her community find better opportunities.
