British-Pakistani filmmaker Faizan Fiaz documents the grim realities of Pakistan’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community at a time when LGBT human rights are under fire.
Holding a mirror up to the Pakistani media, this rare and authoritative investigation spotlights a Pakistani serial killer who preyed on gay men and the hunting of transgender women for TV entertainment.
With unprecedented access, the film lifts the lid on the surprising and unreported experiences of transgender men and lesbian women, dissects the legacy of British colonialism and the impact of the US government’s gay rights advocacy in Pakistan.
With narration from Asifa Lahore of Channel 4’s Muslim Drag Queens fame and music by Asian Dub Foundation’s Sonia Mehta, Poshida is essential viewing for anyone interested in the secret world of a hidden and fearful community.
