Rape accusations against trans model Kami Sid cause a stir on social media

Updated 24 May 2019

Transgender model and rights activist, Kami Sid, has been accused of rape, sexual misconduct and of threatening people to conceal facts about sexual harassment by her.

It all started with a social media post by a user Minahil Baloch, in which she asked people not to support 'rapists even if they make it to Cannes 2019'. She added, "Rapists don't belong to any cis-gender. Rape knows no gender".

Kami, on the other hand, has been celebrating the success of her short-film ‘Rani’ making to Cannes this year. Although no names were taken in the Minahil's social media post, she later shared screenshots of her conversation with Kami, in which the model is threatening her for defaming her through the post on social media.

“My post has nothing to with her and her making it up to Cannes. It’s not the first time she is threatening anyone, I’m making this public and if anything happens to me I want everyone to know it’s Kami Sid,” Minahil posted on Twitter.

Supporting Minahil, few other people accused Kami of rape and sexual harassment. An activist, Shumaila Hussain Shahani, reached out from Kami's circle and posted some details about the rape allegations. She revealed that Kami and her boyfriend had been accused in the past of raping another teenage transwoman, who passed away few months ago.

"Since this information came out of the trans community and reached feminist circles, Kami has been threatening everyone into silence. The purpose of this post is just to inform Kami Sid that things that are public knowledge will be talked about and defamation does not apply here," she wrote.
