Admission to the biennial exhibitions is free, overlapping with the biennial’s vision to create a public space and be accessible to everyone. Diego Bianchi's art work, shown in SALT Gallery, emerged during the last decade as a magnifying and distorting lens of urban life that focused on the formal and mostly chaotic traces of consumerism. Bianchi's project for the 13th Istanbul Biennial is an installation inspired by any given city's brash.© Claudia Wiens

By Muhammed Furqan
01 May 2013

Transgender election candidate Lubna talks to a man in Jhelum city, convincing him to vote for her in the upcoming elections.

46 years old Lubna Laal and Sidra roam around in streets of Jhelum, a city in North Punjab, distributing pamphlets and posters to housewives shopkeeper and common folk. The pamphlets contain Lubna Laal's election manifesto and her posters have a very beautiful and serious Lubna Laal posing as a politician. But its not an ordinary election campaign, Lubna Laal is a transgender and she is running for elections on a provincial assembly seat.

Lubna Laal's original name is Mujahid Kamran and she was born and raised in inner Jhelum city. She left house at an early age and did some schooling. Her main source of income like most transgenders in Pakistab was dancing in weddings and newborn baby celebrations. Now 46, Lubna has left dancing and now manages few other younger transgenders and lives with them in a small house in suburbs of Jhelum city.

Lubna Laal is very popular among housewives of inner Jhelum and equally loved by shopkeepers in bazaars of Jhelum. She says this popularity is because she's been working in these areas since a long time.

Lubna says the response to her campaign has been very positive and people have appreciated her hard work and passion. She aspires to become a provincial assembly member in the coming days. Her manifesto included program to educate transgender community and bring them in the mainstream.

Jhelum is a small city in north of densely populated Punjab province of Pakistan. It is home to very powerful and influential politicians who have no shortage of support and money.

Lubna Laal is very hopeful that she will give these politicians a tough time and that people of Jhelum will support her.
