Pakistan’s first transgender doctor, Sarah Gill, has got a house job at the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre (JPMC) in Karachi.

On Tuesday, a confirmation letter for a house job at the JPMC was given by the Executive Director Prof Dr Shahid Rasool to Dr Gill.

Previously, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto gave directions to the Sindh government to arrange a house job for her.



In response, Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah gave directions to the JPMC to issue a confirmation letter to perform her house job at the hospital.

In September 2021, another transgender lawyer and activist, Nisha Rao, was also granted admission to the MPhil programme to study law.

She was also the first Pakistani transgender person to have received a law degree from the Sindh Muslim Government Law College in 2020.
