K. Sahana remembers how schools that had vacancies would reach out to her once they saw her qualifications listed in her resume. “When I would introduce myself over the phone and tell them I’m a transwoman, they would immediately come with an excuse and promise to contact me later. Those calls never came again,” she says. Things, however, have changed over the last three months, and 28-year-old Sahana is now a science teacher at the Saint Vincent Pallotti Matriculation Higher Secondary School in Pallavaram, teaching students of Classes IX and X. It is a job she loves and she has always been passionate about teaching. But it has not been an easy journey for her.
