Transgeders are among one of the most abused minorities in the LGBTQ people group. To carry them into the social standard of society, the Uttar Pradesh government is preparing India’s first transgender University, where instruction will be given at sponsored rates from KG to PG. Indeed, even research offices and PhDs will be made accessible. The University is being worked in the Fazilnagar square of Kushinagar area. The Akhil Bhartiya Kinnar Siksha Seva Trust is caring for the structured exercises.
While the Yogi Adityanath government has been lauded for the “progressive outlook” toward transgenders, some criticisms, too, are there. “We should integrate transgender people in society rather than further alienate them by opening separate universities,” a Twitter user says. Writes Hemant, “Rather the question should be why do we really need a separate transgender university? Why divide education based on gender?”
