Kolkata to host an awareness event on transgenders tomorrow
In the wake of Supreme Court's ruling on transgenders, in which it categorised them as a third gender, a Kolkata based super-specialty mental health facility, the AddLife Caring Minds, has taken it as a responsibility to spread awareness among the people about the Transgender community and the issues faced by them.

AddLife, the organization dedicated towards Psychological health and wellness, is conducting a CSR event on 24th April, 2014 for creating the awareness.

The guest speakers at the event will be Pompi Banerjee, Consultant Psychologist, Akanksha Mohta, Clinical Psychologist and Kaushik Gupta, Advocate, Kolkata High Court. The session is intended to bust the associated myths that fuel the stigma and to understand what the Supreme Court's judgment means and its scope.

There are many stigmas and issues associated with transgenders in the society. This 'Open to All' session will explore the interconnected yet distinct nature of the three of the major components of self-identity - Sex, Sexuality and Gender, understand the issues faced by the Transgender community and also seek to get better understanding of the recent Supreme Court judgement that recognizes the Third gender.
