Exposure helps outsiders understand the issues and needs of the trans community by “visibilizing” the issues. TWEET does this on the government, organization, and individual levels.
We are advocating with parliamentarians and bureaucrats to ensure that the voice of a common trans person reaches those making and working with the law. You can see our #StopTBBill campaign video to assist the efforts across India.
We are helping education institutions and corporations learn about the sensitivities of the trans community and how to be inclusive.
We have inspired community members to come out and speak about the issues that they face. We have been successful in enrolling transgender members for free courses at the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU), better known as The People’s University, and place transmen in various corporate jobs.
