My recent @natgeo publication about the Transgender being part of main Hindu pilgrim festival. Link in bio^

India’s half a million transgender population—38,325 of whom were eligible to cast their vote for the first time in the 2019 general elections with their transgender identity—had no place in society until the Indian Supreme Court formally recognized them as the third gender in April 2014. And yet, the fight against social stigma, discrimination, self-identification and harrassment continues. The revised Transgender Persons (Protection of Rights) Bill of 2016, currently languishing in the parliament, denies any affirmative action for transpersons in eduation, healthcare, and employment.

Photo by Ismail Ferdous (@ismailferdous) | A Rohingya girl came from Myanmar with her family members on Oct 20, 2017. It took her and her family 12 days by foot to reach Bangladesh border from a village of Myanmar. They used to live near Bolibazar in the Sittwe province of Myanmar. She saw her own brother, uncle and aunt were killed by the Burmese military. Between August and December 2017, 600,000 Rohingya Muslim refugees poured from Myanmar across the Bangladeshi border. Fleeing rape, murder, and what the United Nations has called “a textbook example of ethnic cleansing,” the refugees settled in camps in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh.

Photo by Ismail Ferdous (@ismailferdous) | On a spring lunch break in the street of New Orleans when jazz and rouses chicken muse.

A New Orleans street poet wrote about this photo:
“Angels with filthy souls
Mind your manners,
Street-side chatter,
Echo, Blare,
Sputter, splatter.
This is the Royal treatment,
Good as it gets,
Credits and debits,
It’s only a poverty
Of imagination
That would lead 
one to call
This all filth.”
