`Others' column left unfilled by many transgernders
The transgender population in Hyderabad is estimated to be a little over 800. But that might not reflect in the latest Census, which is likely to put the total figure at a meagre 100 (approx).

Bringing India’s transgenders into the mainstream
For the last decade or more, I’ve been working with Mona Ahmed, a hijra, on writing her life. Mona lives in a large compound called Mehendiyan — named after the mehendi trees that once dotted its gardens — close to the walls of the old city of Delhi. Here, local lore is still rife with the stories of a legendary hijra couple, Sona and Chaman, whose lives were split, like those of millions of others, at Partition. Tall, handsome and striking to look at (Sona died some years ago but Chaman is still around, ninety years old, stunningly beautiful), Sona and Chaman were forced to think of nationalities at Partition, and while Sona left for Pakistan, Chaman stayed on in India.

Bill would overturn ruling on transgender use of bathrooms
Rep. Kenneth Fredette, R-Newport, knows he’s about to step into an ideological hornet’s nest. He’s been there before.
Fredette, a former member of the Maine Human Rights Commission who was elected for the House of Representatives in November, seeks to overturn a 2010 commission decision regarding transgender students in public schools. In September the commission opted to work with the Department of Education after the gubernatorial election to develop guidelines for how to accommodate transgender students’ use of bathroom and locker room facilities.
