On Sunday, Transgender activists from across the country gathered at Sansad Marg in New Delhi to protest against the Transgender Persons (Protection Of Rights) Bill 2016, which is up for discussion in the winter session of the parliament. Transgenders claim the Bill has “draconian, violative and regressive provisions”. The activists are demanding gender based internal reservation for trans persons, stricter laws for violence against the community, free access to gender affirming medical procedures and national and state trans rights commissions.
