the third sex

This shoot is a special dedication to all the eunuchs.Nature & society has played a cruel game on them. Its high time people start respecting them as humans. I wish to portray them here as humans not just beautiful but gorgeous as ever.
The Hijra of India are probably the most well known and populous third sex type in the modern world — Mumbai-based community health organisatio .The Humsafar Trust estimates there are between 5 and 6 million hijras in India.. Often (somewhat
misleadingly) called eunuchs in English, they may be born intersex or apparently male, dress in feminine clothes and generally see themselves as neither men nor women. Only eight percent of hijras visiting Humsafar clinics are nirwaan (castrated).
Help them by simply accepting them & giving them dignity and an opportunity to education.

"We too wanna go to restraunts, visit cinema halls & parks.We also want to educate ourselves & inprove our prospects."

“Not man ,nor woman...just human”.Respect eunuchs!

“Give us an opporutnity to education.Even we are humans, give us dignity & respect. Stop treating us as outcasts.”says Urmi a Transgender

Heena is a double graduate, socialist & activist working hard for sexual minority group rights. She says ,“After all the hardships society has shoved on me ,my purpose in life is to make the world a better place for transgenders like me.”

Urmi says “I would love to be born a eunuch in my next life as well, because it dose’nt confine me to social chores ,like to earn as a man or cook like a woman.”
