Instagram Public Photos with #discrimination

It has been such a fantastic experience to be able to connect with all of you ✨


like how a good south indian meals ends with eating a banana, (hehe) hope this has been fulfilling and enriching.

while the visibility of #transgendercommunity is increasing in popular culture and daily life, they still face discrimination, social stigma and systemic inequality.
with a mission of trying to bring about change in the way society views the community,
we would like to end this beautiful #instagram take over on behalf of @aravaniartproject and the @startindia team ❤️

thank you @artindiamagazine for all the magic ✨

“at school, the teacher asked me if i was a boy or a girl. i didn’t know what to say. the neighbours were talking about me, everybody was talking about me. i was not happy, i was feeling sad all the time. but i had my beloved sister who told me that i shouldn’t worry and be proud about who i am.” naze flavier is from #burundi. she fled to #southafrica seeking safety and acceptance of who she is: a #transgender woman. instead she ended up homeless and the victim of rape. she is being assisted by passop, an organization that helps refugees and immigrants in south africa.

“i confessed myself as a homosexual for my family and for society. it was a very difficult time or stage of my life because it was a phase in which i was still in school.” pepesta is a transgender woman from mozambique. she came out to her family when she was 16 years old, which began discrimination she would continue to face in school and then in work. “i suffered a lot of bias at work because of my s****l orientation i have faced many challenges, and one of the worst challenges is access to health care services for being a trans woman.” this discrimination propelled pepsta to becoming an activist, promoting access to healthcare for transgender people in maputo.

X-men was a huge part of my childhood, mainly because i thought it would be cool to have special powers. as i got older, i connected with many of the storylines from the show, the comics, and the films on a deeper level dealing with discrimination. i’m really thankful that stan lee brought these stories to such a large audience that are now a part of our social fabric. #stanlee #xmen #discrimination #racism #homophobia #transphobia
