Hi,
My name is Vijusha Neelam, I am a transgender from India but undergone operation. At present i am in UK, doing my MBA. I had one same sex partner named Ms.Radhika for last 10 years, she separated me from my previous partner and when i married one man to settle her and the other girl friend, she was with me along with him and made me to leave him legally so as to live with her. My ex-friend Mr.Santhosh who is living with his wife, and three children deceived me and started having illegal sexual relationship with my partner. They both wanted to hide their relationship with me and when ever i go to India, wanted to be with me normal as she is my partner and he is my friend. I came to know this through Santhosh's brother, when i questioned they threw me out of the house. They both deceived me and ruined me physically, mentally, socially and economically. I want to fight for my rights legally, i need your gracious help. Hope you can do some thing. I have evidence of letters, photoes, greeting cards, and a house on both of our name which i bought.

Regards,
waiting with great hope for your help.

Vijusha Neelam.
