Asked a question in Parliament on the number of transgender persons in the country, whether the Government is aware that such transgenders have no right to education, employment, ration card and civil rights etc; if so, the action plan of the Government for the rehabilitation of these socially segregated people; whether the Government proposes to bring a legislation to legitimatize the very existence of these transgenders.
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.
