Indonesian transsexuals, or Warias, still feel the urge to practice Islam
despite being shunned by Islamic Authorities.
We headed to Indonesia to visit the Senin-Kamis School, an Islamic school for
Indonesian transsexuals. Our host, Hannah Brooks, meets the school's founder,
Maryani, and the rest of the ladies who call this place home. Then Hannah is
taken to a local funeral, where Maryani speaks about the difficulties of living
as a transvestite and a practicing Muslim.
