The actress went on to explain how people need to understand the struggles of the transgender community and not just stereotype them as beggars. She emphasized that this community has a lot to offer and deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.
Jaitley’s comments come at a time when the transgender community in India is fighting for their rights and recognition. Despite the landmark Supreme Court ruling in 2014 recognizing transgender people as a third gender, they continue to face discrimination and marginalization in various aspects of life.
Not worried at all about my upbringing I was brought up by 4 generations of Indian armed forces, the trans community was & still is mostly most deprived, dehumanised in our country, people like you make it difficult to fight their ostracisation & are responsible for their plight! https://t.co/Va9UPG8VkU
