Girl Up Voice: A Voice Breaking Taboos

GirlUp Voice in collaboration with TWEET India (a registered organization empowering Trans
Movement in our country) is organizing, PROJECT INAAYAT, a fundraiser campaign for the transgender community of our country.
Project INAAYAT is a month-long campaign that aims to educate the society about the struggles of acceptance and unjust behavior towards the transgender community. The community has battled right from the start, they are the victims of trauma, rejection, and
discrimination in society.

GirlUp Voice is now in collaboration with TWEET Foundation presents Hirayat!

Hirayat is a panel discussion where 5 transgender activists will discuss the struggles of acceptance and the constant challenges faced by the transgender community. Panelists for the discussion are:

Ms. Nitasha Biswas(India’s first Transgender beauty pageant winner)
Mr. Sanjay Negi (Roadies Revolution fame)
Mrs. Padma Kumari ( Trans Rights Activist)

The panel discussion will be followed by the street play “De taali” by Aayaam, the theatre society of MAIT.

De Taali talks about how the stigma we imposed on transgenders has affected them, for they are seen as we want to see them and they have been living as we want them to live. The play leaves a question mark on us, the ones who chose their fate, based on the gender
they chose and challenges the liberty we take to define the limits of their lives.
