DHAKA, BANGLADESH - DATE UNKNOWN: A hijra with decorative make up, in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
Officially known to the government as the third gender, the Hijras are a tight-knit community of transgender individuals in Pakistan and India. In the chaotic city of Dhaka, Bangladesh, the Hijras are often excluded by their families and relatives due to attitudes towards transgenders. Danish photographer, Jan Moeller Hansen, visited Dhaka city from 2010 to 2012 to meet and learn about the Hijras and their lives in the Bangladeshi society.
