Transgender People Helping Chennai Corporation in Door-to-Door COVID-19 Survey

Ten transgender people have been rendering help to the Greater Chennai Corporation (GCC), in Thiruvanmiyur division to conduct a door-to-door survey for COVID-19 and acute respiratory infection symptoms.

The transgender people have been roped in by the Tamil Nadu Corporation for Development of Women, under the Tamil Nadu National Urban Livelihood Mission (TNULM) scheme, to assist the GCC.

“Some people came to me for lack of job opportunities. I approached the GCC and took them to homes. They have been collecting data from households for the past two weeks,” said S. Radha, community manager, divisions 181 and 182, zone 13, Tamil Nadu Corporation for Women’s Development

“We include 120 homes daily and for the past two weeks. We are checking for symptoms. So far, residents have responded well and have warned security for our pandemic,” said Nila

Ms. Radha added that the transgender people have been working very hard as they know that they have been given an important responsibility. “The stigma in the minds of people against transgender people should go. This is a first step towards it. While the government should provide more employment opportunities to the community, companies should sponsor their education. This will help them come up in life,” she said.
