Transgender Activist Dead After Hospital Refuses Her Treatment of her 8 Gunshot Wounds

It saddens me to report this. A transgender Pakistani woman died after being shot 8 times then was turned away from the local hospital reports Rawstory:


Alesha, a 23-year-old transgender District Coordinator for TransAction in northern Pakistan, was attacked and shot eight times, according to a Facebook post from the organization. Her friends rushed her to the hospital, but doctors wouldn’t treat her and she died Wednesday morning.

“Congratulations KP Govt,” TransAction posted. “The TransAction Board Member and the district coordinator of the transgender Provincial Alliance Alesha died in LRH because she never received intensive medical attention.”

The hospital told them that no bed was available for her.

Colleagues detailed their struggle to get medical attention with photos on Facebook, both directly after the incident and in the hospital. They didn’t know whether to admit her to the women or men’s wing of the hospital. Friends report sexual harassment, requests that her friends “perform a dance” and how much she charged for a dance party. This while they were fearful about Alesha’s life and safety.

This was the third time Alesha had been shot.
