Two Miss India Transgender Pageants in Tamil Nadu

CHENNAI, India. Transgender people in India are among those who have suffered the most. We have been subjugated into sexual slavery and then discarded like trash after those who have developed a fetish for transgender people's lust has been sedated.
In an attempt to raise the spirit of transgender people and to change how the public views us, a non transgender man, Mr. A.J. Hariharan, (pictured left) founder secretary of the Indian
Community Welfare Organisation (ICWO)
is planning Miss India Transgender 'Beauty pageant' to be held in Chennai India.

However well intentioned at that at this time the pageant would focus on physicality and ignore the spirituality and intellectual components that are truly at the core of being transgender. This would clearly do more damage that good, as well intentioned as it may be, by contributing to the misogynistic perception that only the physically "Perfect sexual Woman" is acceptable.

Transgender Activist Kalki Subramaniam, founder of the Sahodari Foundation based in Tamilnadu, India believes that although this may a step it is a miss step and not a step up for transgender people. She has objected to this pageant and is planning a transgender pageant that would focus on the beautiful soul of transgender people.

Please email Mr.A.J.Hariharan. and voice your concerns about the focus of his "Beauty Pageant".

Sex-change for Free : Tamil Nadu India


Tamil Nadu : Forced Prostitution and Slavery In Exchange for Sex Change

Tamil Nadu : Forced Prostitution In Exchange for Sexual Reassignment Surgery(SRS)

I published an article on Friday, March 13, 2009 Sex-change for Free : Tamil Nadu India . I was very impressed that a State in India, Tamil Nadu, in a country with a long history of suffering transgender people to the lowest station of society was doing what appeared to be a 180 Degree turn about by offering Sex-changes for free. Sexual reassignment Surgery(SRS) to transgender people is freedom but a very costly one that marginalized people worldwide could never afford, without help.

Ever since that article was published planetransgender had hundreds of inquiries about 'Tamil Sex' and not one inquiry about the State of Tamil Nadu or how to arrange the SRS operation.

The article below found on Chennai Online, India is exposing what amounts to sexual slavery benefiting from what by first blush would appear to be a wonderful selfless act by the state of Tamil Nadu, India. Who is the grim reaper? It is doubtful the transgender people who were just arrested for trafficking had the where with all to organize and carry out such an undertaking.

Is the state of Tamil Nadu India sponsoring and benefiting from sexual slavery of the very most vulnerable people in it's citizenry?

Found on Chennai Online,

"Chennai, Apr 15 Five transgenders wanted in connection with an inter-state human trafficking case surrendered before a city court here today, taking the number of arrested and surrendered transgenders in the case to 11."

"CB-CID ADGP Archana Ramasundaram told PTI that the five persons, wanted in connection with the case relating to conducting transgender surgery on a teenager and forcing him into prostitution, surrendered before a Magistrate court and were remanded to 15 days judical custody."

BREAKING NEWS From planetransgender april 16, 2009 "Tamil Nadu : Forced Prostitution In Exchange for Sexual Reassignment Surgery(SRS)"

Laying in the southeastern corner of India is Nadu Tamil. The state of தமிழ்நாடு with culture predating recorded history has transitioned back to the future as a world leader of progressive thinking by offering sexual reassignment surgery. In a country suffering from current western transphobic influences, the present treatment of India's transgender people often mirrors that of it's contemporaries, with indifference and cruelty being the norm. This has not always been true of India and once again the ancient reverence of humanity is manifesting in popular culture.

Published by Indian the article by Vinay Sitapati is much more than a story about getting a Sex-change for free, it is the story of societal success..

"In the midst of all this, Tamil Nadu stands out in how it treats transgenders. The state has set up a Transgender Welfare Board with a budget of 50 lakh rupees per year. That’s around 100 rupees per eunuch — meagre but without parallel in the rest of India. More than money, it’s the schemes themselves that are eye-catching: special ration cards for eunuchs and “admission to transgenders in Government colleges,” to quote DMK MP Kanimozhi. But it’s Tamil Nadu’s decision to pay for sex-change surgery that is truly path breaking." read on Sex-change for free
