Plans afoot to help transgenders join mainstream

in INDIA, 31/08/2013

In a move widening inclusive policymaking, plans are afoot to draft policies to help transgenders join the mainstream.

Top officials of the social justice and empowerment ministry brainstormed with representatives of the stigmatized community on their needs, committing to help improve the lot of transgenders.

Shabnam Mausi, elected MLA in Madhya Pradesh in 1998, Kamla Bua, mayor of Sagar in 2009, and Laxmi Narayan Tripathi (Laxmi), a transgender rights activist and actor, were part of the gathering.
