Renowned Pakistani fashion designer Maria B has stirred controversy by claiming that 80% of men in Pakistan’s fashion industry identify as LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, or others).

In a podcast interview, Maria B discussed the industry so she was asked to speak against transgender people.

She said her tolerance had run out, so she decided to speak out on this issue.

Maria B said that she started talking about LGBTQ or transgender people when such individuals started saying on social media, “All sexual orientations are permissible in Islam.”

She alleged that she had never spoken about LGBTQ or transgender people before, because such individuals were earlier confined to their own identity or homes.

This statement has sparked a mix of reactions from the public.

Some appreciate Maria B's willingness to address a sensitive topic, while others disagree with her approach or dispute her claims.

The conversation highlights the complexities of discussing gender identity and sexual orientation in Pakistan's cultural context.

This is not the first time Maria B has shown outrage against the LGBTQ community. The designer once demanded Joyland’s screening to be banned across Pakistan.
