The Empire of Disgust

H.R. Vasujith Ram

Oxford University Press

This chapter traces attempts to remedy the centuries of stigma faced by transgender people through law and legal action. Beginning with the judgment of the Indian Supreme Court in National Legal Services Authority v. Union of India, this chapter surveys major legal developments including the multiple Bills under considerations. I find evidence only of mixed progress, typified by patterns of misunderstandings and vacillation.

Keywords:   transgender, India, stigma, law, disgust, prejudice, discrimination, NALSA, hijra, third gender, identity
