Description :

Indian hijra or kinnar injects insulin into her sick mother's thigh.In India, there are up to 1.2 million transgender people, also known as hijras. Earlier this year, the country's first transgender mayor was elected and less than 12 months ago the Supreme Court granted legal recognition to the community as a third gender.To an outsider, it might be assumed that these hijras - described as 'men minus maleness' - are able to lead peaceful lives without fear of discrimination, but this could not be further from the truth for some. Hijras live together in houses where a chief or godmother acts as leader. They refer to each other as mothers, sisters, aunts, grandmothers and great-grandmothers. They have maintained a traditional Indian style, in contrast to many middle and upper class women who have cut their hair and wear western clothing. Many are encouraged to become prostitutes due to the financial benefits as well as beg in return for blessings.Source: footage is part of the professionally-shot broadcast stock footage archive of Wilderness Films India Ltd., the largest collection of HD imagery from South Asia.
