Kerala: The transgender couple whose pregnancy photos went viral – BBC News

A pregnancy photoshoot by an Indian transgender couple – who paused their hormone therapy to have a baby – is being widely shared on social media.

Ziya Paval, 21, and her(sic) partner Zahad, 23, who live in the southern state of Kerala, were in the process of gender transition when they decided to have a baby.

Ms Paval, who says she(sic) always wanted to be a parent, was recorded male at birth and now identifies as female.

Mr Zahad, who uses only one name, was observed as female at birth and now identifies as male. He(sic) is currently pregnant, and the couple expect to welcome their baby soon.

“It is very difficult to survive,” Ms Paval says, adding that she(sic) will have to take on more dance students.

“Zahad will go back to work about two months after the baby is born. Then I will take care of the baby.”
