About the Webinar

The plight of the transgender community is not a new issue, yet something that almost always misses the public discourse and is hardly in the limelight. This discussion is aimed at spreading awareness on the issues concerning the transgender community and what they have been met with, in the recent past, especially with the ongoing pandemic. The discussion aims to provide an elaborate picture of the common problems of the community in both these jurisdictions.

The speakers shall attempt to highlight the ignorance and unawareness, primarily because of not having on board the transgender community members whilst taking decisions by the governments of the day. The discussion will hopefully shed light on the dark lives of the transgender community in an attempt to understand and stand with the community at this hour of need. The webinar is a mark of respect and to commemorate the Pride movement in the Pride month of June 2020.


The webinar is open for students, scholars, academicians, advocates, human rights, and transgender community activists and surely for the transgender community members.
