JAIPUR: Taking a note of the Supreme Court judgment and guidelines to ensure equal opportunity and access to all services and schemes for the transgender community, the JMC-Greater launched a campaign to put up signs for transgenders at all community toilet complexes in the corporation.
“We are committed to ensuring gender inclusiveness at all levels. Today is yet another opportunity for us to showcase our intent in action. We take immense pleasure and happiness to announce that all the CTCs /PTs under JMC-Greater will now carry signage for men, women and transgenders,” said mayor Somya Gurjar.
The mayor congratulated Nai Bhor and the Centre For Advocacy and Research (CFAR) for initiating this campaign in the city.
Welcoming this initiative, Pusha Mai, founder, Nai Bhor, a community-based organisation working for transgenders, said, “The transgender community faces a lot of challenges and access to sanitation is even more challenging. This is not just a signage, but a sign of inclusion and acceptance. Our community members now don’t need to defecate in the open or be worried of not having access to community toilet complexes anymore. We worked closely with CFAR and we are thankful to JMC for this initiative that will be a role model for other states too.”
