THIRUVANANTHAPURAM:  The Kerala Pradesh Transgender Congress (KPTC), which serves as the feeder organisation for the state Congress, underwent a recent overhaul. Despite the state’s pioneering efforts in 2015 to launch a policy aimed at securing justice and equal rights for the transgender community, the community still perceives a lack of acceptance from their party colleagues. The KPTC was launched with much fanfare in 2020 under the tenure of Congress state president Mullapally Ramachandran. Over the last three years, the feeder organisation was led by Arunima M Kurup, a trans woman, who is currently pursuing her second-year LLB at CSI College for Legal Studies in Kanakkary, Kottayam.
