    Suman

    from Bengaluru (Bangalore) Urban, Karnataka

I'm a transgender woman from Bangalore. I work with a prominent CBO in the city in the capacity of director. I'm the first openly transgender student to have enrolled in St. Joseph's College, and am now completing my Master's in journalism. My aim is to continue working on trans rights and welfare through advocacy work, and promoting the growth of leaders and changemakers from trans communities.

For the past few months, we have not been paid for our work with the CBO, and are now looking for donors to support our work. My family is unable to support me, and the entrenched stigma against trans persons in society has meant that other employment is very hard to come by. As a result, I've also found it difficult to continue my education. I request your support and encouragement, and would appreciate your contribution to my education fund.

Thank you for your time :)
