In Pakistan there are very little celebrations on the party calendar, because dancing and celebrating in public is seen as non-islamic. The only exception is at a wedding. Asif from Bannu organizes a wedding party for his friend Nasir, whom just married. Because men and women can not dance together following Moslem culture, she-males are hired for entertainment.

vpro Metropolis was a video project by Dutch broadcast organisation vpro, that ran from 2008 to 2015. Metropolis is made by a global collective of young filmmakers and TV producers, reporting on remarkable stories from their own country/city. We made a trip around the globe on one single issue: from local beauty ideals to Elvis impersonators, to what's it like being gay, or an outcast or a dog in different cultures.
