Asked a question in Parliament on whether the Government is planning to implement a policy or scheme to accord benefits of reservation in education to transgenders in the country, whether the University Grants Commission (UGC) has issued directions to all the Universities requesting them to include a column for transgender category in all application forms/academic testimonials.

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.
