For the first time in India, a transgender library has been opened in Madurai. Interestingly, it came at a time when there is an increasing awareness about the ambisexual people in the country.
The library was opened as a part of the transgender resource centre in Madurai.
“Programs for alternate-sex children should be announced in the National Children”s Policy and transgender subjects should be included in the school education system,” said Priya Babu, director of the transgender resource centre in Madurai.
The resource centre was launched in 2016, with an aim to promote the transgender people and also aware the masses of the genderqueer.
As per the 2011 census, there are 4 lakh 90 thousand transgender people in India and about 21 thousand are in Tamil Nadu.
