We all got used to the idea that people get only visual satisfaction from models, but don’t actually hear them. And do we need to? Definitely. The model industry is changing, letting transgender models raise their voice.
When most of the world becomes more and more loyal to transgenders, for India, it is still a huge breakthrough in fighting gender classification stereotypes. Considering Caitlyn Jenner as their inspiration, the activists of a brand new transgender modeling agency are working hard to be accepted by modern society.
Rudrani Chettri Chauhan is an activist of Dehli LGBT NGO community Mitr Trust and the founder of India’s first Transgender Model Agency which is operated and managed by transgender people. The primary aim of the agency is to raise awareness about the discrimination many transgender people in India might be facing today.
