“Loutna – A Journey of Acceptance”

By Sidra Altaf

The vlog is about the personal journey of Pastor (Priest) Ghazala Shafique, the first female priest in Pakistan who took an initiative to set up a Church in her residence in Karachi, Pakistan for Christian transgenders. The blog is elegantly structured bringing to light Ghazala’s twofold struggle – firstly, her struggles as a female priest of a marginalized community in Pakistan; secondly, the hardships she faced when she took a bold step to help another sensitive community, transgender, so they can practice Christianity in a safe environment.
