Topic: Rights of Transgender Persons Bill

Why trans in India is calling Constitution Day as Gender Justice Murder Day?

The transgender community has opposed the Bill vehemently, with activists calling Constitution Day a ‘Gender Justice Murder Day’ for the community.

‘It violates right to self-identity and constitutional rights’. Why Transpersons criticise the new Bill?

Transgender, intersex and gender non confirming community from across the country and allies have together opposed this amended Bill, which apart from an improved definition of the term transgender, continues to be unacceptable and needs to be redrafted or withdrawn.
