Asked the Health ministry whether the Government has taken note of stigma and discrimination being faced by the transgender individuals while accessing healthcare services in the country; the details thereof along with the action taken/proposed to be taken by the Government to address the issue; whether the doctors and other medical personnel receive any specialised training to deal with the medical cases of the transgender individuals with increased sensitivity in the country.

REPORT CARD

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.
