They don’t just dance…

In Afghanistan, women are not allowed to dance or go to parties so an old tradition kicks in. “Bachas” are young boys who dress as women and dance for older men. Dancing, though, is not the only way the boys are used as substitutes.

Watch "They don’t just dance…" on RTD website and on RT’s live feed. The time of the broadcast is available on RT’s schedule page.
