Eunuchs dance after getting recognition

Transgenders hope to get OBC benefits after SC recognises them as third gender

The Supreme Court verdict recognising them as "the third gender" was welcomed by the community all over the country. A report from Vadodara said that Akuti Patel and Manvi Vaishnavi working for a city-based NGO called Lakshya which works for transgenders described it as a landmark judgement. "We hope that the Centre will now treat us as socially and economically backward and consider us as OBCs for jobs," Patel said.
