The group was founded in 2013, and aims for the empowerment,education and employment of the trans*community in Tamil Nadu and of sex workers,people living with HIV and marginalized communities from within the trans*community. The group is creating leaders from within the community to solve problems and helping sex workers lead and create change. Rehabilitation and rehoming of trans*persons and trans sex workers was a major feat for the group.
“Being sex workers, trans*women and dalit women(in reference to Indian caste system) getting funds has always been very hard so our team has always been resourceful with limited funds and have managed to provide an office space, helping closeted trans*individuals and skill development for trans*individuals and contributions to arts through involving more of them in the fields. We conduct the trans*achievers award function which creates role models within the community for trans*people to recognise the barriers they can break.”
