Jillu and Shreya are from two different villages in Cuddalore, Tamilnadu. After many ordeals and having experienced excruciating pain both mentally and physically by being a transgender in this society, We are now trying to mingle with the society. We decided not to isolate ourselves anymore. In short, we want to keep our heads high just before those who don't have a second to turn the heads.
Our resort in taking alms and engaging in sex work showed us the most heinous faces of the society already. We are now trying to believes some good hearts out there. We really want to believe 'Equality' exists in the real world out there. A Normal Person who comes under the gender role category,has various options and sources to relieve him or her from the stress and mental agony.Gender role people do easily get that support from their ecosystem. There is no other alternate ways for the livelihood except begging and sex work, which kills the whole point of survival. Self employment seems the only possible way before us now to lead a dignified life. We seek the wholehearted support morally and financially to start the boutique business of our own.
The Plan is to import materials, make customization for the customers.We initially thought it as a scary idea. We were scared about how people perceive this Initiative. But, we do have faith that collective help could get us along our pursuit to Change.Not just Us.There are more like us who wait to break the inner barriers and hesitations first. We want to touch lives of other Jillus and Shreyas. A donation, like, share, or even you simply reading this far means everything to us.
