Transgender Bill needs certain changes: LGBT community
The Transgender Persons (Protection of Rights) Bill 2019, which was passed in the Lok Sabha a few days ago, still needs changes for betterment, feels the LGBT community. The contentious provision which criminalised begging has been removed in the current version of the Bill. Punjab-based LGBT activist Mohini Mahant said, “The Bill has good as well as concerning points. “The Transgender Bill is an absolute abomination. It was passed in the Lok Sabha without serious debate which is why the transgender community in India has opposed the Bill vehemently,” said a member of the LGBT community.
