“The Transgender Persons (Protection of Rights Bill) 2016 criminalises Transgender Persons”

19 Dec 2017
The Transgender Persons (Protection of Rights Bill) 2016 poses threat to some of the basic rights of transgender people. Far from guaranteeing their protection, the bill gets the definition of a transgender person wrong, and ends up excluding a majority of the community. Individuals and groups came together to protest the bill at Parliament Street, Delhi on 17th December.
