LIC turns a new leaf in the life of transgenders | LIC | | Indian Express

News from India:

LIC turns a new leaf in the life of transgenders | LIC | | Indian Express: "CHENNAI: The next time you see a transgender canvassing life insurance, credit it to a brainwave from LIC. On Friday, 60 transgenders from Kancheepuram, Tiruvallur and Chennai participated in a camp, organised by LIC along with the Social Welfare Department, where they would learn the nuances of being an agent for the corporation.

R Vasuki, Commissioner, Department of Social Welfare, said, “This kind of employment opportunity will economically empower the transgenders and will keep them away from begging and commercial sex.”"
