I have documented transgender life in India , the Transgenders live as a community with the leader and comprises 'daughters', 'sisters' and 'mothers' - no males. After being rejected by their own biological families, the Transgenders family becomes the first and only source of emotional support. They are strong, close knit and provide safety and security for the abadoned people.Due to discrimination most of Hijras prevented to get a job, education and human rights, so mostly they come out of the family and they live their rest of the life by begging or prostitution.
