‘Frowned upon’ no-more.
There were no dual shrill claps, there were no gasps or shrieks and there were no arms asking for money… The smoothest, professional and yet the most intriguing stories were heard inside the walls of Numa, the venue for Under 25 Summit’s workshop ‘Moving Up – Staircase Project’.
Alex, a cross dresser, and Shanti who changed her gender few years back, spoke whole heartedly on their journey so far. An eye opener in many ways, the participants at the workshop not only applauded them for their frankness, but were equally surprised that they were listening to somebody as normal as themselves. When the world is talking about equality between men and women, we had two inspiring individuals, still unacceptable in many parts of the world for their sexual orientation and gender change, talk a lot of sense.
The workshop concluded with a fun activity where everybody cross dressed and literally got into the shoes of the two adorable speakers who made them understand that not everything related to the other gender is to be ‘frowned’ upon.
