***TW: discussions about forced castration, prostitution, homophobia, rape, religion***
With Caitlyn Jenner and bathroom debates making front-page news, trans people are now part of the American consciousness. And yet most of the world doesn’t know about the hijra, India’s transsexuals, who are officially recognized as a third sex in a country where homosexuality is illegal.
For many gay Indian men, they have two choices. They can ignore their homosexuality and live in repression, get married to a woman and try to raise a family. Or they could undergo a castration to live their life as a transsexual woman in the hijra community.
Animal Liberation March going on in Mumbai, India right now 😍😍😍💚💚💚 I wish I could be there. So so proud of all vegan/AR activists who have travelled from all over India to join this march and speak up for the animals! I'm sure many people will listen to the voices of the victim animals today!
Pope Francis thanks Polish people for opening homes to Ukrainians fleeing war:
"I cordially greet all Poles. You were the first to support Ukraine by opening your borders, your hearts and the doors of your homes to Ukrainians fleeing the war. You are generously offering them everything they need so that they can live in dignity, despite the drama of the moment. I am deeply grateful to you and I bless you from my heart!"
