We have reached a time when we are finally at least discussing the topics of gender, acceptance and equality openly. While the society as a whole still remains stubborn in certain matters, there is a, fortunately, a group that is sowing the seeds of right and wrong. Acceptance is something our society lacks, it always expects people to mould with their preconceived notions and people who break the barriers are often excluded. This video by BLUSH is a rarely told story of a married couple when the wife finds out her husband is a transsexual.
Loosely based on the 2015 English movie The Danish Girl, this video titled Qaid talks about gender dysphoria and how the wife accepts her husband after knowing he is transsexual. The video revolves around the upcoming Karwa Chauth that celebrates the bond of husband and wife, showing how their relationship changed for the good post the husband's transition.
