Two transgender register in employment exchange

in INDIA, 27/09/2013

For the first time in Tamil Nadu, two transgender - P.Kajol and S.Priyanka - have registered in the employment exchange in Tiruchi.

This marks the fulfilment of a long-term demand of the community. A government order has introduced a column ‘T’ for transgender to register in the employment exchanges.

Kajol has a higher secondary qualification and holds a diploma in beautician course while Priyanka is a qualified nursing assistant.
