Transgender Indians and their allies have been urgently rallying against a transgender bill. They want the bill to be overhauled before it is considered by the upper house of parliament on Tuesday (8 January). Over the weekend, the trans community gathered in cities across India to encourage the upper house to reject the bill. They want a parliamentary committee to review the law. India’s lower house of parliament, the Lok Sabha, passed the Transgender Persons (Protection of Rights) Bill last month. It was supposed to protect their rights. But, the transgender community has slammed it.
