Eunuchs campaign to save girl child in Haryana
The tune is the same, but if "Sheela Ki Jawani" titillates you, "Betiyon Ki Kahani" will inspire you. Eunuchs in Haryana have a fresh take on the Bollywood hit which they sing to campaign against female foeticide in the state. The eunuchs here have changed the lyrics to sing praises of women as a signature item at the homes of newborns to encourage raising a girl child and educating her.

Ladyboys to bring razzle-dazzle with them
The ladyboy dancers of Thailand promise to shimmer into the imaginations of the audience with their brilliant dance performances, which are full of razzle and dazzle. These members of the third gender will be making Chandigarh their first port-of-call when they tour India. The 23-member visiting troupe would give performances at the Tagore Theatre from February 4 to 6. It would then move on to Ludhiana to perform there from February 11 to 13.

Thailand's ladyboys conquer the sky
For several decades, Thailand has been one of the world's major areas of sexual tourism. This dubious glory of the country owes much to the movement of transvestites and transsexuals. Yet, outside the realm of sex-service representatives, "the third gender," even in uber liberal in terms of sexual morality Thai society, was not in demand. Aviators decided to change this unfair situation. Airline P. C. Air has decided to employ transsexuals on aircraft as flight attendants.

Speak OUT: Transgender left out of DADT repeal
Since former President Clinton introduced the policy in 1993, Don't Ask Don't Tell has served as an institutionalized tool of homophobia. The policy outlawed any person from serving openly in the military as gay or bisexual, and forced thousands of soliders to hide their identity from the same people they were trusting with their lives.

What's Between A Transwoman's Ears Is More Important Than What's Between Her Legs
One of the things that upsets me at times is that society and transpeople sometimes place far too much importance and attention on what genitalia is between our legs when the focus should be what's between our ears.
