Mangalore – 16th May, 2023 – On the day of International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexism, and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT). TransgenderIndia, a pioneering organization dedicated to empowering the transgender community, announces the release of the world’s first online gender transition course platform designed to provide medical, legal and social transition resources for transgender individuals. This groundbreaking initiative marks a significant step towards fostering inclusivity and combating discrimination faced by the LGBTQIA+ community, particularly transgender individuals.

TransgenderIndia’s online platform features a vast collection of videos and courses, in both English and hindi language meticulously designed to provide step-by-step guidance about medical , legal and social transition. These resources not only assist individuals in seeking appropriate transition support but also offer valuable insights into the process, helping them navigate it with confidence and without fear.

On the occasion of the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexism, and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT), TransgenderIndia sheds light on the prevalent transphobia experienced by transgender individuals in the medical community in India. Despite the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) classifying gender dysphoria as a non-pathological condition, many doctors in India still perceive it as a disease. However, a small number of trans-friendly doctors in the country offer support to transgender individuals seeking to undergo a gender transition. To address this issue, TransgenderIndia has developed specialized medical transition courses aimed at assisting transgender individuals in their journey towards transition.

On a legal front, government ID cards are required for various everyday activities, such as purchasing a SIM card, taking a train, or booking a hotel room etc. However, lakhs of transgender individuals, face challenges in proving their Indian citizenship, let alone obtaining or transferring government ID cards and educational degrees. While the government has established a process for changing gender on legal documents, many transgender people are unaware of it. TransgenderIndia’s courses bridges these gaps and provides the necessary knowledge and guidance.

For the courses TransgenderIndia has partnered with qualified professionals, including doctors, lawyers, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), who possess extensive experience and a proven track record of delivering exceptional care to the transgender community. These experts specialize in areas such as psychiatry, hormone replacement therapy, surgery, legal matters, and employment opportunities, ensuring comprehensive support across various aspects of transgender individuals’ lives.

“Through my personal experience of transitioning in India, I have come to realize the complexity, risks and dangers associated with the process. Sadly, many transgender individuals are compelled to hide their true identity due to these obstacles and societal stigma,” said Neysara, Founder and Director of TransgenderIndia. “Our courses aim to provide essential support and resources to those who have no choice but to undergo the difficult journey of transitioning.”

TransgenderIndia’s offerings include courses that delve into topics such as Hormone Replacement therapy, surgery, coming out, legal gender changes, equal employment opportunities etc both in Hindi and English. Tailored specifically to address the needs of the Indian transgender community, these courses present a world of possibilities, empowering individuals to embrace their authentic identities and find contentment in their lives. TransgenderIndia Sets Global First with Revolutionary Concept

“We have dedicated over two years of relentless effort, from course design to rigorous testing, to bring this initiative to life. The journey involved extensive collaboration with doctors, lawyers, and various professionals, as well as meticulous recording and presentation of our hard work. Today, I am immensely proud to contribute to our community in such a meaningful manner.” Said Paras K Dogra, Project Manager

TransgenderIndia’s online resources are accessible to everyone, aiming to bridge the knowledge gap and serve as a beacon of hope for transgender individuals seeking guidance, understanding, and support. For more information and to access the platform, visit
