She was  speaking  as a chief guest at a  function organised  by ’Ondede’ at the Eric Mathias Auditorium of St Aloysius College  to release the report "Domestic and Sexual Violence : Voices, Rights and  Fight for Dignity" on July 13, Friday.

"The situation at present is such that even the sexual minorities are not accepted by their families.  The atrocities on our community are continuing. Treating  our community  with respect and dignity is the need of the hour," she stated.

Transgenders should be accepted as they are by the society, she said adding no religion is against sexual minorities.

The Union Government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi is silent with regard to  the demand to   decriminalise  homosexuality under Section 377 of the IPC. The government needs to make clear its stand, she added.

Releasing the report,  Deputy Commissioner Sasikanth Senthil  said a district level policy would be framed in order to ensure a life of dignity for transgenders.

’Ondede’ programme convenor Sanashree, Principal of St Aloysius College Dr Praveen Martis, Citizens’ Forum Chief Vidya Dinaker, Srinidhi, Sanjana of Parivartna Trust were present.
