Transgenders welfare board to soon set up in Kerala!

For the first time, Kerela will set up a justice board for transgenders, which aims at ensuring justice and equality for members of the community.


This policy will provide free legal aid to check growing discrimination and violence against them. When in 2014 Supreme Court recognized transgender as a third gender, many people from this community came out openly to claim their rights.

The board will set up a 24×7 helpline, issue ID cards and ensure hassle free arrangements to mark their status in all records. According to a survey transgender face maximum exploitation in police stations. So, even we should start respecting them because they are also human beings.
