Meet Nitasha Biswas, India’s First Transqueen Who Is Breaking Stereotypes, One At A Time

Kolkata-born trans icon Nitasha Biswas experienced gender dysphoria in her early years, feeling trapped in the body of a man. Coming out to her family and elder brother wasn’t easy, but she decided to go ahead with the transformation process through hormone replacement therapy (HRT). While it brought with it a new set of challenges, she navigated through that period and also went on to create a landmark by winning India’s first-ever transgender beauty contest.

She is a firm believer that it is education that can help create change and highlight the challenges that the trans community grapples with.
