A court in Pakistan has ordered the formation of a medical board to do a ‘gender test’ on a trans man who is accused of changing his gender to marry a woman. The couple have now been charged with having a same-sex marriage, a serious allegation in Pakistan where homosexuality is criminalised. The case was heard by a single-member bench of the Rawalpindi registry of the Lahore High Court on Wednesday, (July 15). According to the Express Tribune, Justice Sadaqat Ali heard that Ali Akash had transitioned and undergone gender-affirming surgery. Akash maintained this was the truth and said that he had the medical reports to prove it.
