Petition demanding for reservation of seats in public transport for Transgender Persons

Date : 10/04/2020

Transgender Persons have borne the brunt of bias, discrimination and transphobia persisting in society at large. This becomes increasingly acute when transgender persons attempt to use public transport . There is a constant threat of abuse—sexual, physical and mental, that transgender persons are subject to everytime they step inside a bus. As a community transgender persons are continuously ridiculed and humiliated in buses along with people at large actively obstructing us from entering buses. Because of these reasons, most transgender persons are forced to use private transport in the manner of autos or cabs. This is a completely unnecessary and unwanted expense that transgender persons are regularly forced to incur, in fear of a threat to their life.

Considering these issues HRLN filed a case for reserving seats in Public Transport for transgender persons
