Asked a question in Parliament on the details and number of transgender welfare boards formed under the NALSA Judgement, the number of parents of transgender children benefited from schemes for financial support, the number of transgender students who benefited from the scheme for pre-matric scholarship, and the number of transgender persons benefited from scheme for assistance for skill development and training.

Remember: MPs who have spoken up on LGBTQIA+ rights or trans* rights are not automatically queer-friendly MPs. State of the QUnion is not meant to celebrate those who have spoken up for equal rights but is rather meant to be a platform for accountability to demand action from our elected representatives. We must interrogate their views on caste, religion, gender, and other axes of marginalisation in addition to their party's stance on these issues. See this post on pinkwashing for more details.
