September 3rd marked four months since the state of Manipur has been grappling with ethnic violence. Till August, the death toll had reached close to 190 and approximately 60,000 people had been displaced from their homes. Roughly 40% of the displaced population are minors who have been cooped up in relief camps. Concerns have been raised about the potential psychological issues stemming from the trauma they have endured during their confinement in relief camps. A group of transgender men have been a ray of hope for these children. Ya.All is a youth network working towards LGBTQIA+ inclusion in Manipur and the North East. It is their all-trans football-team who are helping the children in relief camps to find moments of joy amid adversity.
