In 2014, the Supreme Court of India accorded ‘Third Gender’ status to transgender people and an individual's right to determine the gender they want to identify with. The verdict also included a directive for separate toilets for transgender individuals in public places including hospitals. But we hardly come across these toilets in public and finding a gender-neutral toilet in India is almost next to impossible. So, I would request the Government to provide necessary infrastructure so that 4.88 lakh people of our country can lead their life with normalcy and dignity.
