Kerala has become India’s first state to roll out a transgender policy to ensure a non-discriminatory treatment among all genders.
Transgender people face discrimination in almost every field including education and career. The four major rights that the Kerala policy confers on Transgenders are:
Right to Equality, Right to Dignity and a Life without violence, Right to Freedom of Expression, and Right to Equal Participation in Development.
This policy will ensure equal access to social and economic opportunities, resources and services, right to equal treatment under the law, right to live life without violence and equitable right in all decision making bodies.
Isn’t this wonderful!
