A Look Inside The Brave And Difficult Lives Of Indian Transgender Females

"While living in Bangalore, documentary photographer Sahar Fadaian felt drawn to their community. Transgender women are trapped in a life of begging and prostitution. Most remain in trans families while some marry and escape their poor, cramped and dangerous living conditions.”In the Indian culture, there is so much focus and emphasis on a woman’s ability to have children; therefore, Hijras who are unable to reproduce are considered a separate identity that can not fit into any category of male or female,” Fadaian told us.

Fadaian extensively reveals the dangerous yet brave lives of these transgender women through her photos. Working with different NGOs, she brings us into the homes of women and children to tell their stories."
