Udupi: Milagres College, Kallianpur in association with Vidyarthi Darbar organized an enriching interactive session with transgender activists.
R J Kajol, an actor and activist hails from Bramhavar, along with Ramya and Bindu, being transgenders for decades, enlightened the students of the college, with their life stories.
“From being isolated and denied opportunities they are forced to stay away from family, education, job, etc. Disowned by institutions in society has driven many of the transgenders to begging and prostitution. The social stigma attached to the LGBT community is a disaster to the bias-free world. Youth must spread the awareness amongst people to treat LGBT community with respect.
“Responsible citizens of this country need to set aside stereotypes they have upon LGBT community in order to be considered as cultured,” said Ramya, a transgender activist, while answering a question raised by the audience.
Numerous questions were asked by the students during the interactive session. The session had thrown light on the misconceptions that exist among the people about LGBT community, misery of transgenders’ life, etc.
Kajol was honored for her achievement in spite of being a transgender. Sowparnika of II MSW, and Sowmya of II MCOM conducted the interview. Ashwitha Shalet D’Souza, department of post-graduation in Social Work compered the programme.
