Supreme Court recognizes transgenders as 'third gender'

The Supreme Court in India made a landmark decision in April of 2014 to recognize transgender people as a third gender, rather than forcing them to write either male or female on documents. This third gender allows for them to not be discriminated against when getting an education or applying for employment. In addition, the apex court in India wants to start a public awareness campaign to stop the discrimination of stigma toward transgender individuals.
