Hijras: The "Third Gender" in Pakistan

As part of the museum's Out in the Himalayas Pride month series, Guru Hijra Bobby and Chicago poet Ifti Nasim examine the "third gender" tradition, discussing how hijras—most of whom are gay transvestites, some of whom have undergone crude gender-change operations—function on the bottom rungs of Pakistan's social ladder.
