Yes. Despite this tumultuous legal scenario, there are trans people trailblazing and lending visibility in several walks of life in contemporary India. Lalit Salve from Maharashtra is a constable and trans man who fought for leave for his surgery. K Prithika Yashini from Tamil Nadu, is the first transwoman sub inspector in India. Swati Baruah is Assam’s first transgender Lokpal judge. Sathyasri Sharmila became the first transgender lawyer to register with the Bar Council of Tamil Nadu and Puducherry. M Monisha, from Belagavi, has created history by becoming the first trans person to be appointed in the secretariat. West Bengal constituted a trans development board with Manobi Bandhopadhyay (the first transgender principal of a college) as the vice chairperson. Shanavi Ponnuswamy is fighting against the government-owned airline Air India’s discriminatory hiring practices.
