To dispel the myth that transgender individuals in India are only sex workers and beggars, Transgender India, a web platform for members of the community in India, rounded up some members from the transgender community and asked them to share their feelings and thoughts to break the stereotypes of their lives and their gender. Here are some of the photos:
