Government battle over transgender protections in India

Protections have been put in place for transgender people in India, but there is some confusion as to its implementation. This story discusses a court case regarding the protections, and the implication seems to be that the central government is dragging its feet.

Note that the story uses the term "eunuch," which is commonly used in India to refer to trans people. It does not have a negative connotation there. In the US, however, the term is not generally used, and would likely be considered pejorative.
