Striking Portraits Shed Light On Bangladesh’s Third Gender

I feel like a mermaid. My body tells me that I am a man but my soul tells me that I am a woman. I am like a flower, a flower that is made of paper. I shall always be loved from a distance, never to be touched and no smell to fall in love with.” -Heena

Bangladeshi Hijras (transgender women) are individuals who were designated male at birth but adopted feminine gender roles. Their physical appearance and behavior set them apart in this conservative country.

Photographer Shahria Sharmin grew up thinking Hijras were “less than human”. Then she met Heena, who opened her life to the photographer and made her understand her, and others who live in her community, as the mothers, daughters, friends and lovers that they actually are.

Read the whole story.

See more of Shahira Sharmin’s photographs of Hijras.
