It was the night of February 24th when an Indian model and designer Nin Kala landed at the Muscat International airport to explore the city on a tourist visa. She was with a few friends. All of them cleared the emigration, except Kala as she belongs to the LGBTQ community. The two immigration authorities took her to a separate room to “examine”. She was asked to remove her shirt. She thought it was a regular examination. But then, the officer called another officer, who again made her remove shirt. “The officer pinched my belly and asked why my body is so smooth and hairless. It was an inappropriate question, but I said that is how my body is and I was born like this,” told Kala who identifies herself as genderqueer and non-binary trans person.
