Transgenders seek acceptance

in INDIA, 20/08/2012

To sensitise the public on various problems sexual minorities face, a media consultation was organised on Friday. “Gender minorities such as transgenders are often harassed,” said Akkai Padmashali of Sangama.

“They become victims of violence. They are discriminated against because of their gestures and voice. They have no access to public transport, voter ID or public restrooms.”
