Hans, a 22-year-old Lebanese drag queen, prepares himself for a show as his transsexual friends Sasha 20 (C) and Toy 21 look on in Dbayeh, north of the Lebanese capital Beirut, on January 15, 2016.
Hans works as a costume designer during the day and Drag Queen at night. Transgender people are heavily stigmitized in Lebanon but on January 16, 2016, Lebanon’s Court of Appeals granted a transgender man the right to change his sex in the civil registry on account of his own gender identification, marking a step toward granting transpeople legal recognition for their status. / AFP / Patrick BAZ
