Shahria Sharmin's photographic project, "Call Me Heena," on Bangladeshi hijras, who identify as either “third gender” or transgender, is on display at Open Society Foundations–New York until May 13, 2016. When Mohona, 29, turned 10 years old, her father locked her up for three years to hide her feminine nature from the world. After breaking free and eloping, she eventually ended up in Delhi. She feels she can live more freely now, but it cost her a place within her family home in Bangladesh. Delhi, India, 2014.
